False killer whales spotted off Phang Nga

Around 20 false killer whales have been spotted near an island in Phang Nga province. Off the record of Wow Andaman Tour has reported that a tour group spotted them off Koh Miang Island within the Mu Koh Similan National Park off the Phang Ngan coast within the Andaman Sea.
“These whales broke through the water and greeted the tourists travelling on a ship, while a few of them jumped and performed across the boat. Ultimate was a really fortunate sighting because it was in the course of the Christmas holidays. We count on they may swim around the Similan Islands for many days and greet vacationers during the New Year competition.”
Meanwhile, in accordance with a report in The Nation, the director of Phuket Marine Biological Centre confirmed that they have been false killer whales, a “large oceanic dolphin” which, despite their resemblance, aren’t associated to the killer whale. They confirmed that the species is certainly one of Thailand’s uncommon aquatic mammals.
“For the protection of uncommon aquatic animals, boat drivers should decelerate or cease until they swim away, and never chase them, while tourists should not feed them.”
