    Oldest Known Orca Spotted, 103 years old!

    The oldest known orca in the world was spotted near Vancouver Island this past weekend, marking the grand matriarch's annual return to her home waters just in time for Mother's Day.
    The whale, known as "Granny" or J2, is estimated to be up to 103-years-old.

    That's mind blowing I didn't know they lived that long

    Awesome. And also a good reminder why these animals are not ideal for captivity.

    What a fascinating insight! No wonder they're so smart. They have lots of time to learn.
