Orcas or killer whales eat Squid, fish, seals, penguins, whales and more. They are one of the most powerful preditors. They hunt in deadly pods and when there is a seal on a ice burge they create a wave to wash it off. Though they often frequent cold, coastle waters, orcas can be found from the polar regions to the equator. there weight go's up to 6 tons (5,443 kg). Its nearly as big as a bus. did you know orca adult chuck there food back up on to the ice so the young ones can try and do what there parents have tought them. the killer whale got its name because it is really an Orcinus which is a member of the dolphin family. But since the Orcinus would kill whales to eat, the spanish called it 'whale killer' otherwise known as the killer whale.

Antarctica is larger than europe and australia it is extremely cold. It’s like a desert but cold and the icebergs are carved by the wind and sea. I’d hate to go in a condition with one of the strongest storm there. The water is really icy but when you go all the way down to the bottom of the sea its warm because its closer to the center of the world.
There are many animals that live in Antarctica some are clumsy some are carnivores and some slide on their bellies. The killer whale is a carnivores because it eats other whales, it also eats squid, fish, seal, dolphins and seabirds. There is one seal that eats other seals baby and that is the leopard seal they call it the leopard seal because of its spots. Did you know the emperor penguin is the largest penguin. there are 17 different types of penguins and five different types of seals.
