Ave amatici!

hello peeps!
Does anyone here speak Latin?
I know a little, but am not really fluent in it.

Some time back, I was watching a film about killer whales and a voice over at the start of the movie said something about the latin name, Orca orcanis, meaning ' the bringer of death'.
I was thinking "Nah! 'Mort' is Latin for 'death'".
however , I still don't know what orca orcanis means.
Can anyone help me out here?
