Best Answer

Orcas or killer whales are covered in a thick layer of blubber that helps to keep them warm and insulated in the water. This blubber is made up of:

  • A layer of fat
  • A layer of connective tissue
  • A layer of collagen
  • A layer of elastin

The blubber also helps Orcas to streamline their bodies while they swim. On top of this Orcas have a thick layer of dark grey skin that helps them to blend in with their environment.
