Killer whales are what is known as an apex predator, meaning there is no animal in their natural environment that prays upon them. Known as a cosmopolitan species, they can be found in all of the world’s oceans in a variety of different marine environments ranging from the Arctic and Antarctic waters to the tropical seas.
