The Alula Whale, also known as the Alula Killer is a cryptid that resembles a sepia brown orca whale with a well-rounded forehead and white, star-like scars on the body. The dorsal fin, about 2 feet (0.6 meters) high, is prominent and often protrudes well above the surface of the water. It is roughly 24 feet long, and weighs around 2 tons. (4000 lbs)
This species was discussed and illustrated for the first time, but not formally named, by W. F. J. Mörzer Bruyns in Field Guide of Whales and Dolphins. It inhabits the Eastern Gulf of Aden to Socotra, and orcas have been seen in the area that are of a sepia brown color, however, they could be a local color variant or a mutation, or just misidentification of pseudo-orca or false-killer whales.
