Orcinus orca, dostiže dužinu od devet metara i težinu od šest tona i najveći je mesojed na planeti. Međutim, uprkos tome što je izuzetno vešt i nemilosrdan lovac, i što je joj je dnevno potrebno i preko 200 kilograma mesa, homo sapiens se ne nalazi na njegovom jelovniku. Svoj jelovnik prilagođava mestu, tj. moru, gde živi. Topla krv, disanje na pluća, rađanje živih mladunaca i dojenje, razvijen mozak (težak šest kilograma) i nervi, uprkos ribolikom izgledu tela uvršćuju ih u sisare.
