Its a great picture I love Orcas ! But it makes me sad to see these beautiful creatures in captivity and what it does to them.. Like the dorsal fin being collapsed..

Thank you very much! I think the main cause of dorsal fin collapse is spending too much time at the surface. After orcas are moved, they seem to have more of a dorsal collapse (temporarily) due to being out of the water for a long time. It's possible that if a wild orca is spends more time at the surface than usual, the dorsal may lean or collapse. Of course, it is more common for captive orcas to be spending time at the surface.

Their dorsal fins collapse because in the wild they are constantly on the move in the currents and they have the water constantly pushing against it. In captivity there is no constant pressure from swimming great lengths in the ocean and so the fin will collapse.

It weirds me out so much that their top fin gets floppy
