The name "killer" whale. You probably know, but they were once called and still are called "Orca Whales".

ANSWER: They are not very good at expressing their feelings and often times send mixed messages. They too often are seen as aloof and uncaring, but an Orca cares, they care deeply, they just don't know how to tell you this. Try encouraging the next killer whale you see to open up a little and share his innermost thoughts with you. Also, there is a language problem, and if you speak whale or dolphin this would help.
