This creature comes away to change its skin
This species goes eleven thousand kilometers
Cleaning in hot water is automatic process
One made two rounds in five and a half months
New Delhi: Killer whale is considered the most dangerous and invasive species of
in the depths of the ocean. Apart from this, people are often seen hunting them in
the sea. Many times they revolve around an island waiting for other creatures to
come in the sea. It is about these creatures that the secret of their long journey is
revealed for the first time.
Scientists who are constantly researching about this have now come to the
conclusion that their skin needs to be cleaned during their stay in the sea. In the
Antarctica area, when a group of killer whales were seen, there was a light yellow
pathces on them. Generally, this color is not the natural color of their body. On
this basis, research was carried forward.
Many times scientists have believed that due to lack of food in an area of the sea,
killer whales go on long migration. For many generations, they have known their
way of movement. In the same way, a group of wild elephants also travels on the
same route from generation to generation. Killer whale also remain in contact
with each other during this period.
After analyzing every data about this, scientists have come to the conclusion that
they go elsewhere and improve their skin. After they move into areas of hot water,
the ground layer dissolves on their skin. This clears the skin of killer whale again.
Robert Pittman, the oceanographer associated with this research, says that this
result has been derived only after analyzing many data. He began to look into it
when he was working with Southwest Fisheries, California.
The record of the long journey of this variety of killer whale species is about one
hundred years old with scientists. But before this the real purpose of this journey
was not revealed. After collecting data in every way, it has been found that the
cold water of Antarctica when they reach the hot water areas, the hot water only
cleans the layer on their skin. Scientists believe that while living in the cold
Antarctica region, this species is known to flow a large part of its blood from the
lower part of the skin. For this reason, light yellow color layer is seen on them. In
this way they also control their body temperature. From there, internal blood flow
becomes normal after reaching the area of hot water. It also clears the stains on
the upper layer of the skin. This also paces up the process of cell regeneration
In 2011, such a possibility was expressed for the first time. But at that time its
scientific data was not available. Scientists have since collected every data of
killer whale activities. After his analysis, now this secret of the long journey has
come to the fore. Scientists also used 62 satellites for these data. All the figures of
his journey of 11 thousand kilometers from space were also recorded. Research
has found that they continue to move forward once the journey starts. A killer
whale that has come under the purview of research has been found to complete
such a trip twice in five and a half months. This figure has also surprised
Under this research, scientists have found that the true color of the lower
abdomen of this killer whale is white. Due to being in constant cold water, the
yellow yellow layer that gets on it. It also contains harmful bacteria. So when they
reach areas of hot water, they get rid of harmful bacteria along with this layer of
skin. This process of killer whale long migration keeps them fit and healthy.
