Meet the unsinkable Granny, officially known as J2. Scientists estimate this orca whale was born one year before the Titanic’s infamous accident, making her 103 years old.
At this age Granny is the oldest known orca in all the oceans, but that isn’t slowing her down, reports The Province. On Mother’s Day weekend, the killer whale made her annual return to her home waters off Washington state.
“She looked really healthy, still going strong,” Captain Simon Pidcock of EcoVentures told The Province. “We’re really excited to have her back.”
