how about a deep sea death match between a pod of orcas and a big bull sperm whale? i think the bull sperm whale would win.


There is footage of a pod of killer whales taking down a blue whale.

I get that purely based on size, but I would love to see a deap sea death match between a Great White and an Orca.

Really? It would look a lot like that snapping turtle video with the shark being the mice.

I've seen a pod of orcas take down a minke whale. Happened in Icy Straights, a few miles from here.

They are king of the sea. Where the orcas are, the salmon sharks disappear.

yeha but those whales pale in comparison to a sperm whale in terms of aggressiveness and, well, teeth. i don't think there are any documented cases of killer whales attacking full grown bull sperm whales (although there are cases of them attacking the smaller females & obviously the calves are an easy target). those things literally are known to have rammed & sunk ships.

That doesn't always go the Orca's way. (or at least they pretend it doesn't)

Yeah, don't have sperm whales here, but I'd put my money on a pod of orcas. They are badass.

Except that is completely made up (and computer generated). That's not actual footage.

Yeah... I figured that out AFTER I posted the dang thing. That's why I put the pretend part in there.

Still.... it's pretty darn realistic.

Responding to the general love fest of Orcas in this thread..

Yeah they're incredibly intelligent. Each pod has adapted its own hunting tactics based on where they are.

I was watching something on Discovery or something about a seal on a small block of ice that had been running from orcas. When it got on the ice the orcas would stick their heads out of the water (looking at the seal and I guess the whole situation) Eventually 2 or 3 of them swam hard at the ice the seal was sitting on, the waves from the whales tipped the ice over and the seal fell back into the water where it was subsequently eaten.
