False Killer Whale/Pseudorca crassidens
What an amazing surpise we had yesterday afternoon!! Our Lookout Filipe spotted False Killer Whales right in front of our beautiful Vila Franca do Campo.
These species can be seen here in the Azores throughout the whole year. And yesterday was the first day of this season that we spotted them.
False Killer Whales can reach 6 meters in lengh and can weight up tp 2000 kg. Their body is black, long and slender .They are known for their speed and agility!
Although their name is False Killer Whale, they are actually large dolphins, belonging in the Delphinidae Family.
What a treat it was to see them! 🙂
And here is a picture of the Bottlenose Dolphins we also spotted on this tour.
