Fake Killer Whales

Once the ship left Tanna and the awe inspiring Mt Yasur, we sailed to New Caledonia baby. On the way we came across these crazy mammals. Is it a dolphin? Is it a pilot whale? No its a fake killer whale. That's there actual name. Really. I had to read it up. Apparently a fossil was found before the species was recorded and the latin translates to, yep you guest it 'fake killer whale.' Anyhow, they later realised these guys weren't extinct but actually quite widespread in the old ocean!

This pod played with our baw for a while, hitching a free ride, before getting bored and heading off.
