Killer Whales Also Go Through Menopause!

| Filed under: Science!WhalesAmazing

Killer whales go through menopause, just like people!

Apparently Killer Whales share a rare evolutionary trait with us humans:


That's right, killer whales goes through menopause.

Experts say that this trait improves an offspring's chance of survival.

Orcas are one of the rare species that continues to live long after they're done reproducing.

That means that their baby has a great chance of surviving because he's got his mama's help!

The lead investigator of the study into why these whales have menopause said:

"Our main aim is to understand why these killer whales have a menopause strategy that's so similar to humans. Female killer whales stop reproducing in their 30s or 40s but live until they are 90. The possible benefits of menopause for killer whales are that the mothers can care for their children and grandchildren and avoid reproductive competition with their daughters."

Wow, killer whales evolved in such a smart way!

They're cool, gorgeous and built to survive! Way to go, whales!!
