“i suggest you do some research on how orcas and other whales communicate, the fact they even attempt to “mimic” sounds to communicate with is, is a gift in it self, orca’s are HIGHLY intelligent animals, infact they are more socially and emotionally evolved then we humans by several thousand years. If you don’t believe me the information is widely available on many websites.” – affiliatexx

“Killer whales, or orcas, have the second-biggest brains among all ocean mammals, weighing as much as 15 pounds. they are smarter than us.” – ISWAS ISNOW

“Maybe the whale is saying “how you YOU like it? Your noise is driving me crazy” – Philippe Morin

The video clip comes from a documentary film titled “The Whale,” that talks about Luna and the killer whale’s life story.
