    The answer to this depends on whether the whale is in captivity or in the wild.  Overall killer whales live to be anywhere from 25-90 years old.  Males tend to have anywhere from 20-30 year shorter lifespans in the wild than females.  In captivity males can reach much older age.  The oldest known killer whale is found in the K-pod resident population of the Northwest, tipping the scales at almost 100 years old!
