That thing has a long, croc-like jaw.
I agree with you both. A living
Orca's tail has the characteristic horizontal tail fins of all cetaceans, and a blunt, rounded head.
However it's skeletal structure is vastly different.
As you can see, it has a skull which appears not to 'fit' with the living body, being almost like a crocodile's
, and a tail that tapers to a
point. The dorsal and tail fins, having no bones within them, are not present.
It's also quite interesting to note that the skeleton of all aquatic mammals actually retain quite a large degree of similarity to the skeletal
structure of their ancestors, with quite reduced differences (barring the lack of hindlegs, naturally).
