Frightful Fridays! Mashup Marathon! Tuxedorca

I am easily amused by the mashups that I receive, and I knew I had to do something with this one. In keeping with my somewhat rubbish ability to name things, I present the tuxedorca. I'll be back in 60 minutes with yet another monster as the mashup marathon continues!

This massive black and white whale has a penguin head; it makes a tremendous leap out of the water, clearing the surface by tens of feet.

Special Abilities
Surge (Ex)
Once every 10 minutes, a tuxedorca can leap prodigiously from the water, doubling its swim speed and granting it a +16 racial bonus to Acrobatics when jumping from the water.

Mixing a penguin with an orca created a manageably sized whale in the tuxedorca, which serves subarctic druids well. Tuxedorcas are not very maneuverable on land, but in the sea they move incredibly quickly, especially when they surge through the water. Generally, the creatures have a nasty temperament, but they do not display that too much to their masters.
