A few facts about killer whale / orca :
Males typically range from 6-8 m long (19-26 ft) and weigh in excess of 6 tonnes. Females are smaller, generally ranging from 5-7 m (16-23 ft) and weighing about 3 to 4 tons. The largest Orca ever recorded was a male off the coast of Japan, measuring 9.8 m (32 ft) and weighing over 8 tonnes (17,636 lb). Calves at birth weigh about 180 kg (350-500 lb) and are about 2.4 m long (6-8 ft). The Orca is among the fastest marine mammals, often reaching speeds in excess of 56 km/h (35 mph)

Note : You need to cut the red lining as you see in the tutorial picture. Then, follow the arrows instruction on where to attach. To erase the white spot after you done assemble and patching each part, you can use black marker or pen to color them. So it will look better, neat and tidier.
Interesting right? Personally I think this is one of the most catchy among other art craft that I’ve came across. It reminds me of those soft whale plush toys that kids like to hug when they want to go to sleep! *smile* Actually there are still many animal paper craft out there for us to discover.
