quote:

Reading the wikipedia, and I'm gettin a lot of conflicting info on their diets. They say they're not a threat in the wild to humans, but the ntalk about them taking out deer and moose in the water, and slaughtering seals. The only mention of porpoises is that they kill them for the hell of it sometimes, and don't eat them.

Yeah, they just love to kill the tiny dolphins.

As per diet, I don't trust anything that says it won't eat humans but does eat other creatures close in size. It's like when they say sharks don't eat humans.
Excuse me, but yes they fricking do. We may not be the best tasting animal for them, but if they're hungry and in range, they're going to eat you.
I would never feel safe by a killer whale in the water.

You'd be swimming fast and jumping high too if the Nisshin Maru was always chasing you.

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


quote:

If the orca pod is extremely large, its members may sometimes be able to kill adult female sperm whales. Individual large mature male sperm whales have no non-human predators, and are believed to be too large, powerful and aggressive to be threatened by orcas. In addition, male sperm whales have been observed to attack and intimidate orca pods.

quote:

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.

I believe that was the Discovery series "Frozen Planet" that came on like last year or so. And yes, that was cool as shite.

Boy survives bump from killer whale.

quote:

KETCHIKAN — Whale researchers say it was highly unusual for a killer whale to bump a 12-year-old boy splashing in shallow water near Ketchikan.

Ellis Miller found himself face-to-face with an orca charging at him in 4 feet of water Saturday in Helm Bay. The animal, estimated to be more than 25 feet long, bumped but did not bite him.

"I looked underwater and there was this huge head right in front of me," Ellis told the Ketchikan Daily News.

Biologists said whale may have been curious or it may have aborted an attack.

"If it had wanted to take him, it would have," said Gary Freitag, volunteer coordinator with the National Marine Fisheries Service's Marine Mammal Stranded Network.

"I suspect that the whale that approached thought he was a harbor seal splashing," said John Ford, a researcher of killer whales with the Canadian Department of Fisheries and Oceans' Pacific Biological Station in Nanaimo, British Columbia.

Cool video of orcas knocking seals off of ice floes.

Also a really cool video of orcas hunting a Gentoo penguin. My favorite part is 2:50 when the orca looks at him and clearly implies "Hey, give us our toy back!" as though it was a basketball they were playing with.

I came out to a different rig today and we must be along a migration path because they see whales out here daily.

Not the flying killer type though.
