You’re most likely familiar with killer whales, especially at aquariums showcasing them in presentations.
But have you heard about false killer whales?
Although it’s one of the lesser-known species in the dolphin family, one TikToker has taken the time to shed some witty insight into the false killer whale and its distinctive characteristics.
And people are freaked out.
Mamadou B. Ndiaye, who goes by @mndiaye_97 on TikTok, described the false killer whale as “every shark’s paralysis demon.” It is a type of dolphin that’s primarily found in tropical regions and has a similar head shape to a killer whale (orca).
With an all-black epidermis (similar to the Rubber Man in the American Horror Story anthology series) and big, pointed pearly white teeth, the false killer whale appears to be more threatening than typical ocean mammals, with some reaching 6 meters in length and weighing over 4,000 pounds.
