Transient killer whales are sometimes referred to as the Bigg's killer whale, named in honour of Michael Bigg - a Canadian Marine Biologists who pioneered research on Killer whales. The Transient killer whale feeds almost exclusively on other marine mammals and the coastal waters of British Columbia are the perfect habitat for this whale's prey.
