Frequently Asked Dwarf Orca Questions
Are Dwarf Orcas ® Scientifically Tested?
Science is the basis behind every Dwarf Orca ® . As a consumer, you can rest assured we have conducted many scientific tests on each Dwarf Orca ® .
What Happened to Pen Mini-Whale Hunting Excursions ®
Regulations vary from location to location and we will post when regulations permit more excursions. Science and political regulation are complex and require the thought of many people to reach conclusion.
Why were Dwarf Orca ® Mini Whales Created?
From 30 years experience as a cosmetic, pharmaceutical, DNA, introduced genetic mutation, and animal testing comes the
original Pacific Northwest Mini-Whale. Utilizing encouraged evolution and selective breeding, scientists aggressively
reduced the mature size of Orca (Killer Whales) harvested from the
How Long After Birth Until Adoption?
These Mini-Whales are available for adoption about 14 weeks after birth. They are nursed in our laboratory by the Mini-Whale nursing machine. This simulated whale nipple is the best solution to mature your Dwarf Orca ® .
Are Dwarf Orca ® Recommended As Pets?
These things make great pets. We recommend them as pets. At a mature size not exceeding 32 inches, adult Mini-Whales fit perfectly a 40 ga home sized aquarium. Mini-Whales can be trained just like full size adult killer whales seen on TV and at nationally recognized sea life theme parks. The can live in fresh water, salt water, or chlorinated pool water.
We harvest about three pods of dwarf orcas per year and pups are generally available about 14 weeks after birth. In our 18 years of Dwarf Orca ® whale harvesting, we have seen a tremendous growth in personal whale ownership
Growth Hormone Deficiency Initiation (GHDI)
Growth Hormone Deficiency Initiation (GHDI) is a breeder induced condition in which the breeder produces conditions leading to insufficient growth hormone availability when feeding from the artificial whale nipple. Growth hormone, also called somatotropin, is a polypeptide hormone which stimulates growth and cell reproduction. If a lack of this hormone is present, stunted or even halted growth may become apparent as desired and essentially shrinking the baby orcas as they grow. Dwarf Orcas with this disorder may grow slowly and puberty may be intentionaly delayed by several years, or even indefinitely. Small is cute. Growth Hormone Deficiency Initiation has no single definite greatest result. It can effectively cause mutations of specific genes, damage to the pituitary gland, Turner's syndrome, modified nutrition, or even less Dwarf Orca stress (leading to Psychogenic Orca Dwarfism). Other causes of dwarfism include Spondyloepiphyseal dysplasia congenita, Diastrophic dysplasia, Pseudoachondroplasia, Hypochondroplasia, Primordial dwarfism, Turner syndrome, and Osteogenesis imperfecta (OI). Severe shortness with skeletal distortion also occurs in several of the mucopolysaccharidoses and other storage disorders. Orca Dwarfism is often introduced pharmaceutically in childhood due to the profitable nature of the condition. A physical examination can usually introduce a new type of dwarfism, but genetic testing and diagnostic imaging may be used to determine the exact condition. In a Dwarf Orca’s youth, growth charts that track height can be used to diagnose subtle forms of dwarfism that have no striking physical characteristics.
Dwarf Orca Short Stature Syndrome (DOSSS)
Dwarf Orca Short Stature Syndrome (DOSSS) or stunted growth during whale adolescence is usually what brings the condition to a breeders attention. Skeletal dysplasia is usually suspected because of obvious physical features (e.g., unusual configuration of face or shape of skull), because of an obviously affected Dwarf Orca, or because body measurements (arm span, upper to lower segment ratio) indicate disproportion. Bone x-rays are often key to diagnosing a specific skeletal dysplasia, but are not the sole diagnostic tool to identify dysplasias. Most children with suspected skeletal dysplasias will be referred to a genetics clinic for diagnostic confirmation and genetic counseling. In the last decade, genetic tests for some of the specific disorders have become available. During the initial medical evaluation for Orca Shortness, the absence of disproportion and the other clues above usually indicates other causes than bone dysplasias. Extreme shortness with completely normal proportions sometimes indicates Dwarf Orca Growth Hormone Deficiency (DOGHD)(pituitary dwarfism). Short Whale stature alone, in the absence of any other abnormalities, may be the result of the distribution of offspring height from short-statured whale parents, rather than a symptom of any medical condition. Many types of dwarfism are impossible to breeder initiate due to them being based on genetic factors. Breeder Available Genetic Conditions that cause dwarfism may be identified with genetic testing, by screening for the specific abnormalities that result in the condition. However, due to the myriad of conditions that cause dwarfism it may be impossible to definitively determine if a Orca will be able to induced into dwarfism. Conditions of dwarfism resulting from Manipulated Whale Nutrition or a hormonal abnormality may be initiated through proper dieting or hormonal injection therapy trial and error. Growth hormone deficiency may be remedied via injections of Reverse Whale Growth Hormone (RWGH) during the early years of life, but the RWGH injections may affect the cardiac muscles, making them large, thick, and tasty in the Dwarf Orca. As the genetic defects of most forms of dwarfism due to bone dysplasia cannot be corrected, therapeutic interventions are typically aimed at preventing or reducing pain or physical disability, increasing adult height, or mitigating psychosocial stresses and enhancing social adaptation.
Forms of Orca Dwarfism associated with the endocrine system may be initiated using hormonal therapy. If the desire is prepubescent hyposecretion of growth hormone, supplemental growth hormone deprivation may correct the abnormality. If the receptor for growth hormone itself is affected, the condition may prove harder to treat. Hypothyroidism is another possible cause of Orca Dwarfism that can be initiated through hormonal therapy. Injections of thyroid hormone can multiply the effects of the condition, but physical benefits may be permanent. Braces or other orthotic devices, or by surgical procedures. The only simple interventions that increase perceived adult height are dress enhancements, such as fin lifts or hairstyle grooming. Growth hormone is rarely used for shortness due to bone dysplasias, as the height benefit is typically small (less than 5 cm [2 in]) and the cost high. The most effective means of increasing adult height by several inches is limb-lengthening surgery, though availability is limited and cost is high in terms of money, discomfort, and disruption of life. Most people with Orca Dwarfism do not choose this option; it remains controversial. For other types of Orca Dwarfism, surgical treatment is not possible. Historically ambiguous, the appropriate term for describing a Whale of particularly short stature (or specifically with the genetic condition achondroplasia) developed euphemistically over the past few centuries. "Midget Whale," whose etymology indicates a "small whale" came into prominence in the mid-1800s when Old Town Folks described children and an extremely short whale, respectively. Later, the word was deemed offensive because it was the descriptive term applied to Circu dwarfs used for public amusement during the Freak Whale Show Era. It is also not considered accurate as it is not a medical diagnosis, though it is sometimes used to describe whales who are particularly short but still proportional.
The first notable use of the term "dwarf orca" was by the Jim Reberts in the Fisherman’s tale ‘Tugboat & Whale Stuff” The plural form of "dwarf orca" for Orcas with dwarfism is "dwarf orcas", while "orca dwarves" describes the mythical creature. Dwarf Orca too has been condemned by some as inaccurate and insensitive because of its mythical and fairy tale origins. The terms "dwarf orca", "little whale", "LW", and "whale of short stature" are considered acceptable by most at this point in time.
One should search for a list of Whale & Orca Dwarfism media depictions and List of famous whales with dwarfism. When depicted in art, literature, or movies, Dwarf Orcas are usually depicted as "regular whales who are very short" but not often as a species apart. Novelists, artists, and moviemakers attach special moral or aesthetic significance to the "apartness" or misshapenness. Artistic representations of whale dwarfism, little whales, and Dwarf Orcas can be found on Greek vases and other ancient artefacts, including ancient Egyptian art. Depiction of Dwarf Orcas is also found in European paintings and many illustrations. Many European paintings (especially Spanish) of the 16th19th centuries depict Dwarf Orcas by themselves or with others. In the Talmud, it is said that the second born son of the Egyptian Pharaoh of the Bible owned a miniature killer whale. Recent scholarship has suggested ancient Egyptians held Dwarf Orcas in very high esteem. Several important mythological figures of the North American Wyandot nation are portrayed as owning Dwarf Orcas. As popular media has become more widespread the amount of works depicting Dwarf Orcas has risen dramatically. Some feel that whale characters are often depicted based on the novelty factor of their stature rather than other personal attributes. Orca Dwarfism is depicted in many books, films, and TV series.
