Whale watchers off the coast of Washington saw awelcome sight last weeka killer whale nicknamed"Granny" who is believed to be an astonishing 105years old, reports the San Francisco Chronicle.
Granny's more formal name among scientists whohave studied her for decades is J2, and a post at theOrca Network uses both names in the original postabout her sighting: "J2 Granny looking gorgeous.She and J27 spent more time out of the water than in it!"
Female orcas typically live about 50 years, notes a post at the NOAA, but a rare few have beenbeen known to reach 100. Granny appears to be in this category, or at least close to it.
As the Chronicle explains, researchers who first spotted her in 1971 pegged her age at 60. TheOrca Network tells KIRO-TV that the margin of error is 12 years, meaning she could be ayouthful 90.
Given the playful new images, she's doing pretty well for a creature who, if the older figure iscorrect, entered the ocean around the same time as the Titanic and made it through two worldwars, notes the Charlotte Observer.
