False Killer Whales

False killer whales (Pseudorca crassidens) are a large, toothed whale that lives in the tropics and sub-tropics of the open ocean. There is an endangered resident population around the main Hawaiian Islands.

Pseudorca is a top research priority for the Cascadia Research Collective’s work in Hawaiʻi, which is home to the world’s best-known Pseudorca population.
