An adult male Orca emerges from the fog off the coast of California. This transient pod numbered 11 individuals. At certain times of the year transient killer whales patrol the central California coast hunting juvenile whales, dolphins, seals, and other marine mammals. The Alpha Male of the pod is easily distinguished by his tall dorsal fin, which can be up to 6ft in height. But don't be fooled his impressive size, his mom is the boss. Killer whales pods are matriarchal societies.
