Video: New Species of Killer Whale Captured on Video for the First Time

Earlier in the week I shared a story about how an Antarctic tour vessel helps definitively prove the existence of a new species of killer whales. The so-called Type D orca has distinct characteristics that distinguish it from its cousins, and up until the creatures have been incredibly elusive. Now however, we have some amazing video footage of the animals in the wild, proving once again that the ocean is filled with life that we haven’t even discovered yet.
