Killer whale imitates a boat motor in killer video

Killer whales are found in all the oceans of the world and generally live in pods, sticking together like most good families do. But the one whale in this video apparently strayed away.

Evidence suggests it has been hanging around motor boats way too long.

In the video, we see the whale swim up to the back of a boat and come nose-to-nose with the Johnson outboard motor. Then it does the most curious thing. It starts imitating the motor. It even sounds as if it is running out of gas half-way through the video.





It's probably safe to say that this killer whale is the black sheep of the pod.

Thanks Animal Planet!

  1. What I love about killer whales and dolphins is that they know how to have fun. This "black sheep" was just enjoying himself.

  2. I believe this is the video of Luna trying to imitate the sound of the boat's motor. I'm very curious, but is he trying to communicate?
