How much does an Orca weigh?
how long is it on average? 

Like people or most other large mammals, there are many shapes and sizes of
orcas. Adult female orcas may grow to around 20 to 24 feet in length and
weigh around 8,000 to 10,000 pounds. Males are from 25 to 30 feet in length
and weigh from 9,000 to 15,000 pounds.
