Nothing eats the orca whale besides, big Great White Sharks and humans
Young Killer Whales are theoretically hunted by large sharks, although this is considered unlikely and has never been witnessed. As adults, it is theorized that Great White Sharks may try to "sneak-attack" stray adult specimens. This, again, is theoretical, as it has never been witnessed, and Killer Whale almost never 'stray' from their family pods. Killer Whales are also far larger then even a very large Great White's normal prey size.

The orca is actually not a true whale, but is a member of the dolphin family. Strange, perhaps, but true. Though it isn't actually a whale, the killer whale or orca, is an apex predator. It eats whales, sea lions and seals, but really has few enemies other than man. It is an efficient predator that can learn quickly, and it is smart and adaptable. The orca is one of the most lethal hunters in the seas. For more information, a link is provided to the Wikipedia article on the Orca.

No. Orcas are not a species of whale. In fact an orca is a species of dolphin In a family of oceanic dolphins called delphinidae.The orcas other name killer whale can be misleading as people tend to think that it is a species if whale. The reason we call the orca a killer whale Is because they have been seen hunting whales so people started calling them the killers of whales which over time got shortened down to killer whale.So no you shouldn't call the orca an orca whale as it is not a whale instead just say orca!
