Old Mother

A quick rendition of an old female (or alpha female). These water folks revere their elderly, and alpha females are rarely ever challenged. Their lifespan is almost parallel to humans'; their vulnerable years will be from birth to 16 years, and they may live up to 150 years after that, provided if they don't get into fights with other schools or males, get eaten by predators like the great whites, or succumb to diseases/infections.

Their reproduction rate is moderate. They spend 15 years raising their current pups before becoming fertile again, unless their pup dies or gets killed off then they start reproducing immediately with consent from the alpha female. Gestation Period may last up to 14 months, and they give birth to live young. A school may have up to 200 individuals.
