Group A contains:
Onyx was born into L pod but travels with Granny and Spieden after loosing his mother, Olympia L32. To learn more about Onyx's journey to find a mother figure, read Olympia's biography here.
Group B contains:
These orcas are known to switch between Group A and B.
Polaris could be heard vocalizing as she rested at the surface with her family and a few minutes later the orcas began to head slowly north. The kids, Notch, Moby and Star then broke off from the rest of the orcas and began playing together. They tail slapped, spy hopped, wrestled and even found a jelly fish to play with. Once they found the jelly fish, they gathered around it, pushed it, and carried it around atop their heads. Moby then threw his body into the air in a beautiful breach.
