I've got a dozen or so books specifically on killer whales in my library.
Transcribing that information onto the net would be 1) time consuming and
2) illegal for copyright reasons.

I suggest you go to your local library or large book store. In both of
those places you should be able to find 'A Whale Called Killer' (also known
as Orca, A Whale Called Killer) by Erich Hoyt. It's a very good start on
the subject. Look also for these authors under the same subject heading:
Sarah Heimlich-Boran, Kenneth Balcomb, Micahel Bigg, John Ford, Gramme
