False Killer Whale Description
  Few individual false killer whales have been weighed, so it is unclear what the typical weight range is. Maximum mass is estimated to be 1,360 kg. The longest adult male that has been measured was 6 meters long, and the longest female was 5 m. As can be expected based on their name, these animals resemble killer whales. They are mostly black on the dorsal surface, sides, and fins, and they are light grey or white on the ventral surface.
