It's one of the greatest mysteries on the planet to me, why the world's most ferocious, blood thirsty killers typically just pass we humans by with nothing but the equivalent of a smile and a wink.

+Julien Gouweleeuw Actually the Orca is a WHALE that is part of the dolphin family. I can elaborate if you want...? What I want to know is WHAT is the big deal about people calling them whales??? I mean their nick-name is the killer WHALE. It is the dumbest thing to correct someone on given you're both right AND the popularity of it's nick-name. What is your deal?????

You are so right, I should have done my research before commenting whether killer whales were dolphins or not. And as far as the black dolphins, I should have mentioned their underbellies are white.

Killer whales are indeed dolphins. They are the largest member of the dolphin family. There are plenty of small, black colored whales (melon headed whales, pygmy killer whales, pilot whales, false killer whales etc), but I'm not aware of any completely black dolphins. Just saying ;)

Awesome! I think the marine mammal protection thing regards you chasing marine mammals, not them suddenly appearing beside you. You seem to have stayed politely out of their way. As someone else observed, the inland orcas are fish hunters. Orca is actually the largest of the oceanic dolphins, and probably the most intelligent, possibly smarter than us (though in a very different, alien,way).

@kmkfiction2 We seem mostly in agreement. I have no doubt also that sharks know very well what we are. My contention with this thread however was with Orca captivity, obviously I would like to see the practice fade to distant memory. I also agree with the necessity to "dispassionately question the prevailing dogma" Carry on then

kmkfiction2
kmkfiction2 - 10 years ago
I think it is a sad commentary on the state of marine biology, if not Science itself, when people use their purported expertise to orchestrate some sort of public relations charade for sharks. I mean, I understand the premise: if people are conditioned to see sharks as "misunderstood" predators, they may be more apt to support conservation. But at what point does a scientist or naturalist have to see things as they are- and dispassionately question prevailing dogma? The truth works and is.
kmkfiction2
kmkfiction2 - 10 years ago
Why is this relevant here? I have had several purported shark "experts" attempt to bolster their unscientific theories (e.g., sharks are not man-eaters) on account of their academic and/or "research" experience. I'm left thinking: if human remains have ALWAYS been found inside sharks- and the data of human migration patterns proves H. erectus/sapiens have been utilizing the marine ecosystem for over 2mm years...how can anyone credibly contend sharks don't know what we are? Puzzling.
kmkfiction2
kmkfiction2 - 10 years ago
Conspicuously, the premise of "mistaken identity" defies not only the undisputed data that sharks have a wide array of perceptive faculties that could easily differentiate prey- but it defies basic precepts of natural selection as well: to posit that a pelagic shark could not differentiate between a fat-rich pinniped and a seafaring primate would be an injurious trait. White sharks, for example, do not even attack human prey in the same ambush style they attack agile pinnipeds. That's the data.

@tiopirata2 My expertise in sharks, not Orcas, although I know a fair amount about Orcas compared to most. Let me provide an example. 90% or more of all "top marine biologist" allege that sharks attack people on account of "mistaken identity". This assertion, however, is contradicted by nearly all the available scientific evidence and, conspicuously, is not even subject to the scientific method. If anything, pelagic sharks predictably arrive at maritime disasters to feed on human prey.

@kmkfiction2 And now we are in a pissing match, I am at a loss to understand your anger. Given your academic record then, why not source this data which you also point out is available. "Any educated person can make their own theories" as you say, but these require data, and in this instance data provided by those scientists who "spend quality time" with their subjects. I point out that my achievements are equal to and similar to your own, no need to battle here, rather to debate.
kmkfiction2
kmkfiction2 - 10 years ago
@tiopirata2 As an aside, I find it absolutely laughable how the people that spend their lives, say, physically "tagging" sharks or taking photos of Orca dorsal fins to document individuals take such great airs for their efforts, as if, in the end, "spending quality time" among these creatures somehow yields this unassailable insight into sociobiological dynamics. What nonsense. The data is available to all. Any educated person can make their own theories. Get over yourself.

@kmkfiction2 For the record, you haven't pointed out anything novel or particularly noteworthy on this thread, so stop stroking yourself and seeking some form of stilted applause. As for your 50 years at sea, maybe you need to spend some time on land and learn some people skills. Imagine that, coming from litigator.

@tiopirata2 Further study on what, evolution? Unlike you, evolution and population genetics was the primary thesis of my undergraduate work at the #2 school in the US for Anthropology.

tiopirata2
tiopirata2 - 10 years ago
@kmkfiction2 All predators are master killers, or extinct. You are not making much sense here and you are plainly not bothering to undertake any further study, rather preferring to bombard with opinion. The facts really are out there, and as I suggested earlier you should do as I have. I also pointed out my 50 years at sea, direct observation and interaction with delphinids so this is not just academic. Go forth and learn before your next posting. Hear from you in a few years.
kmkfiction2
kmkfiction2 - 10 years ago
@tiopirata2 Perhaps the violent propensities and refined mastery of the art of killing that Orcas' wield is a "dark cupboard" to you and others in academia, i.e., with such a heightened and glorified sense of self-perceived knowledge. Stated differently, your knowledge of these apex predators- whose species-specific adaptations are analogous to mankind's ruthless dominion over his own ecosystem- is derived merely from books. Ah, me. "To know and to act are one and the same." - Takuan
kmkfiction2
kmkfiction2 - 10 years ago
@tiopirata2 For all your condescending banter, you only add credence to my argument: to free Orcas in captivity is to give them a death sentence. But thanks for the heads up that Orcas are pack hunters. People like yourself think you are so smart, but most of your drivel ("sharks attack people on account of mistaken identity!") is a pretext to condition the public to acquiesce to groupthink that is, in the end, utterly divorced from actual Science. I see that as sad.
tiopirata2
tiopirata2 - 10 years ago
@tiopirata2 It should also be noted that a pool for a delphinid is like a dark cupboard for us. Years in such would reduce our eyesight and the finite concrete pool environment has a similar effect on Delphinid echolocation. Further, every Orca currently in captivity shows evidence of muscular atrophy. We can see that for various reasons their odds of survival on release are nowhere near as good as their odds had they never been captured. I recommend you study before your next post.
tiopirata2
tiopirata2 - 10 years ago
@tiopirata2 If you were to capture a young human, lock it away in a very small space for decades then release it into the wild while in relatively poor physical condition, as has been the case with every released Orca, the likely outcome is certain death. Slavery is an analogy only but does describe a lifetime of captivity and servitude without care for the intelligence of such a creature as this. I have no issue with killing, particularly if survival justifies it.
tiopirata2
tiopirata2 - 10 years ago
@kmkfiction2 I note that humans, chimps etc re released into the wild also fail to thrive, generally with worse outcomes then Orca. Delphinids are pack hunters in a very competitive environment. Releasing an Orca is not the same as putting it back into its natural environment which had once included its pod, ie its family. Delphinids spend their lives among their close relatives in their natural state yet not one of the very few orca released has been reunited with their kin. More..
kmkfiction2
kmkfiction2 - 10 years ago
@tiopirata2 For all your purported knowledge, it cannot undo the fact that Orcas re-released back to the wild starve. As for you characterizing captive Orcas as "slaves"- taken to illogical conclusion, every single creature in any form of captivity is therefore a slave. By analogy, if a human kills a creature to eat, does that make him or her a "murderer"? Do tell.
tiopirata2
tiopirata2 - 10 years ago
Further to my comments earlier, I have spent considerable time among Orca, have sponsored 20+ year studies of them, have lectured at universities on their behaviour and psychology and sailed the oceans for more then 50 years.Captivity for Orca has much in common with human slavery. Their own echolocation becomes painful to them inside pools which resemble what a 6 x 4 room may be to us.It is not a beauty but a cruel sadness driven by commercialism and sadness.
tiopirata2
tiopirata2 - 10 years ago
@kmkfiction2 True, they can adapt to captivity, much as a human adapts to slavery. On release frequently either would display dysfunctionality. I recommend all read the appropriate studies, particularly those such as Dr Ingrid Visser's still ongoing 26 year study or read Frank Hodgeson's book "Pictures in the Dolphin Mind" to discover who these creatures are and how they think. Imagine the rest of your life in a 6 x 4 cell, that's a pool to an orca. Fantasy speak = ignorance.
tiopirata2
tiopirata2 - 10 years ago
@kmkfiction2 There is a huge body of study confirming this, as well as decades of observation, particularly of odontoceti strandings and behaviour. Not delusion, fact. I was a lecturer at Massey University on the psychology of these creatures, I have studiedand recommend all of you do the same. The great naturalists, Dr Ingrid Visser, Frank Hodgeson et al, studied them in the wild as well as captivity and learned more from wild populations.

A wrath unspeakable in them and us too
kmkfiction2
kmkfiction2 - 10 years ago
If Orcas weren't in captivity, serving as a living statue of illimitable beauty, an entire generation of naturalists might not find their path, or people seek to preserve wild places and the Orca's wrath, unbound off the shores of Patagonia, like a murderer taking what pinnipeds time will allow- so please- let's not talk in fantasy speak- these dominate apex predators can adapt and once in captivity, would starve and die if let free. That is the end of the analysis and story. Bless them all & u
kmkfiction2
kmkfiction2 - 10 years ago
@tiopirata2 "Preferring death to separation", lol, listen to you testify for the Orca- almost as ridiculous as the underlying sentiment, as if, in the end, your delusion works and is
tiopirata2
tiopirata2 - 10 years ago
Delphinids, including Orca, form the strongest familiar bonds known, occasionally preferring death to separation. Orca have an intellect probably equal to our own, no surprise that they turn on their captors occasionally. They are harmless to humans if undisturbed in the wild. Their "trainers" dont do it for love, they get paid like any other warden.

@SqueakerJenks Depends what type of killer whales they are. resident killer whales eat mainly salmon so are harmless but offshore and transient killer whales eat other whales, seals and penguins, so i would watch out for those. killer whales in captivity have been known to attack trainers although that is most likely provoked.

Sociobiology is understanding that each creature has species-specific adaptations to fully realize its inclusive fitness via dispassionate discharge of its ecological niche. Everyone accepts that Koala bears are highly specialized feeders, whereas many struggle to acknowledge Tiger/White/Bull/Oceanic Whitetip sharks have adapted to eat arguably the widest array of actual prey, including terrestial species that wash out to sea, or men that walked a plank, crooked and cursed the sharks attack thee

@stevos14a A sham? As in, abra cadapbra (sic.)? It's all true, swear on my life, I'd even swear on you. Conspicuously, your inferences underscore the same kind of unfounded speculation my analysis on shark attacks disproves (e.g., "mistaken identity" hypothesis). See? irony isn't just a literary device. It works and is, like the freedom to be several things at once.

According to the standard phylogenetic tree, whales are known to be the descendants of terrestrial mammals that had hindlimbs. There are many cases where whales have been found with rudimentary atavistic hindlimbs in the wild. Notably Kyoquot station, Vancouver island 1919 case .

kmkfiction2
kmkfiction2 - 10 years ago
@Pvjinflight Why do you talk about sharks "making a mistake" by attacking a human? No scientific evidence supports such an inference, given their finely-tuned perceptive faculties. Moreover, such an injurious trait would contravene Natural Selection. By definition, GENERALIST feeders do not "make mistakes" when feeding on available resources, e.g., after a maritime disaster. The fact it is statistically infrequent hardly supports the inference an "abnormal" or "sick" shark was responsible. Duh.
kmkfiction2
kmkfiction2 - 10 years ago
@Pvjinflight Ah me, another Euro-goober investing intelligence into ignorance and dispensing judgmental gibberish regarding sharks. That's right, genius. They are documented man-eaters. You have not slightest clue what ecological niche a pelagic shark even occupies, much less fully comprehend what a generalist feeder even means. You are like a helpless Haitian in the FL straits losing what little strength you have, like a swimmer, and I can feed on your folly at my caprice and my leisure.

@fkkkkkenig (just to clarify) Are you talking about statistics for captive born orca attacks on trainers?. If so then the most aggressive orca in captivity at the moment is captive born (orkid). There are several captive born orcas who are only allowed to be handled by the most senior trainers because of aggression) If you want the actual statistics look them up on orcahome(dot)de

@chozn11 A human has never been killed by a wild orca and researchers and film crews swim with them in the wild all the time. In captivity an orca attacks a trainer on average once a month and 4 trainers have been killed. What does that tell you.

@wannabedesi Seriously... I was being facetious, I don't care what they are because I already know what they are and being PC about it and avoiding the term "killer Whale" because its not entirely accurate really isn't necessary. I also feel I don't need a school lesson every time I come on youtube. Plus everyone hate the people who are constantly correcting everyone. Just enjoy the show was my point and case.

@Hoopermazing And you apparently had that whale in a psychiatric session and it told you that right.. If you are stupid enough to Kayak with them, when they flip out and attack you , you deserve it. Bottom line No 1 can determine when or why some wild animal attacked you. Its all speculation why someone gets killed because not one animal told anyone anything.

Orca's are actually part of the dolphin family! And are called 'killer whales' because they are one of the only animals that actually kill other whales ! They also have another name which is wolves of the sea ! As they work in a pack ! This video is amazing and I am going to British columbia this summer and plan on doing this it should be amazing !

@xThrashMonkeyx Oh please. You are describing mammalian traits and yet talking about sharks. They don't learn by "trial and error", they neither render or receive maternal care and have no documented kin selection. Sharks not only lack the cognitive capacity to have abstract curiosity, their ecological niche is utterly incompatable w/ empathy or remorse. The known man-eaters are generalist feeders that will eat anything. It is silly to talk about "mistaken identity"- there's zero evidence.
xThrashMonkeyx
xThrashMonkeyx - 11 years ago
I am not trying to state than an Orca is more dangerous than a Shark or vice versa. I was just replying a comment that said that sharks "pretty much go for anything" or something like that. There are few reported Orca attaks on humans, as almost any carnivore could attack and also possibly kill a human being. But to answer your question, it just a matter of shared habitat and statistics. Humans are mostly attacked by reef Shaks, near towns and beaches.

This is a thousand times better than going to see some poor trapped animal at a commercial aquarium. Seeing animals in their habitat is what it's all about. It is telling indeed that these orcas posed no threat to the kayakers, and that the only times a human was attacked was when the animal was in captivity. Visiting an orca museum in Friday Harbor, San Juan Islands, WA, I examined an orca's brain on display. I was nearly the size of a basketball. What an animal!
xThrashMonkeyx
xThrashMonkeyx - 11 years ago
@zam19862003 Untrue. most shark species possess problem-solving as well as social skills, and curiosity. They have keen senses along with electroreception and lateral line. Sharks attack men because our swimming resembles the one of a wounded seal, slow, loud and splashing. Many shark species have flat or non-functional theeth. Due to our ingnorance many shark species are endangered. Sharks are not man eating machines. Sharkwater is a great documentary film on the subject.

What a load. Nature deserves better than this!

It would be a dream come true to go swimming with orcas some day. Although I love them and think they're amazing, but still I think that being in the water with them there would be some fear rising up. And I don't mean this kind of fear with total panic but a fear of thinking about what they could do if they wanted to, I mean they're HUGE! But a respect a man should have for any wild animal, especially to a top predator, and sure they deserve all the respect from us <3 so wonderful they are.

@TheTeenagedirt You aren't supposed to, no .. but the Orca's might have other plans. Don't forget that they are almost as curious about humans as we are about Orca's. Heck, any whale in the dolphin class species will tend to do what the orca's did here. Especially if your boat doesn't smell of oil, ie. a pure sail boat with no engine.

@raulmendezgarcia there has never been a recorded case of a wild orca attacking or eating a human. 2nd, these are resident orcas and they only eat fish. Even the transient orcas (who eat marine mammals) have never attacked a human. The cases of orcas attacking people only happen in captivity. People have swam with wild orcas before (although I dont think its reccomended to do on ur saturday afternoon lol)

When the orca turned up we left. they killed and ate a minki and a harbour porpous that and tthe next day. The hump back were all mature and capable. My 60 Lbs. kayak and my 175 lbs of power and might would have made for a snack... A snack smaller than the porpous. NICE video. These are the resident whales we don't see on the east coast.

@sweetypie000 Yes you are wrong actually... "theres no white on them...... killer whales ? ummmm..." you were implying that they were not orcas, when in fact they are. I am not embarassed, if anything you should be, I was just stating two facts. One being that these whales are in fact orcas and the second being your lack of intelligence. I'm not trying to "somehow justify myself", stop trying to seem smart on the internet, I'm sure you already know it but you really aren't.

@LukeShetler There is not one documented case of an orca eating humans. Any time an orca has killed a human, it has been in captivity - where orcas behave more aggressively. Transient killer whales hunt marine mammals, as you said, like whale calves. They kill whale calves to consume the tongue. Humans are not natural prey of orcas, therefore they do not hunt us. And not every orca hunts mammals - there are pods called residents that feed exclusively on fish, which these most likely are.

kmkfiction2 - 12 years ago
Second thing. The notion "trial and error" is Nature's main learning process is flat out false. For an altricial human being, ok yes that's true. For a precocial animal that learns to run or hunt in a week? Uh, no. Nature endows both predators and prey with survival strategies. If every animal had to rely on trial and error to know what a poisonous/dangerous creature was, fewer genes would be passed to the next generation. Instinct teaches over animal's limited cognitive abilities.
kmkfiction2
kmkfiction2 - 12 years ago
I think you are relying on speculative assumptions that disregard known scientific facts. Sharks are opportunisitc, generalist feeders. Why speculate that a shark "mistakenly" attacked a known prey item (humans)? There has never been a time, era or historical period where sharks didn't attack and eat people. H. erectus colonized Java, what 2mm years ago? How did humans not come into contact with sharks along the Zambezi river? These facts disprove the speculation they don't "know" what we are.
nat365
nat365 - 12 years ago
We are making similar points, the big difference being you seem to think a shark would never, ever make a hunting mistake, while I say that while some may target people deliberately, the idea that a shark could mistake a person for something else is perfectly credible. Just because an animal is sophisticated doesn't mean there is no room for error; trial and error is nature's main learning process. I'd bet most sharks have never even seen a human. There are far more of them in the ocean than us
kmkfiction2
kmkfiction2 - 12 years ago
Dogs "bite" people. True shark attacks are when sharks bite people and eat parts of our bodies. Sharks are not "territorial" and do not attack people like a nesting crocodile would attack a human. Sharks attack due to hunger. The fact they eat a single limb or half a person doesn't prove they "didn't intend" on doing what the predator (ahem) just did.
kmkfiction2
kmkfiction2 - 12 years ago
Second thing. I very much believe that Tiger/Bull/White/Oceanic Whitetips ALL are "sophisiticated" enough to know what humans are and be able to tell the difference between us and, say, a seal. White sharks do NOT attack humans like they do seals in 90% of the true predation events. As an aside, do lions know what everything on the savannah is? Do eagles know what everything is? Nature endows predators with amazing instincts. I don't know the mechanism is is given; isn't all trial and error.
nat365
nat365 - 12 years ago
Of course they know the difference in taste - which is why more people are bitten then eaten. Also, you undermine yourself - a shark would not target a person instead of a seal, because a seal is indeed 'fat-rich' and therefore better to eat. But if it thinks a person is a seal, because they are on a surf board or the way they sound when swimming... Also, they can't just 'know' what a person is, they have to experience them. You don't know whether something's good to eat until you bite it.
kmkfiction2
kmkfiction2 - 12 years ago
I'm not "ignoring" it. When a camera is placed underwater, MOST White sharks avert the attack at the last second. But they are coming up at, what 50-80mph? I just don't think it is relevant to "disprove" human predation. Isn't that what "mistaken identity" theory is all about? As for "mouthing/exploratory" behavior, this is obviously NOT predation. But we are talking about two different things. The man killed a month ago at Fish Hoek was consumed by the White shark. It was feeding itself.
nat365
nat365 - 12 years ago
So you're ignoring the fact that white sharks have consistently attacked decoy seals made of rubber being pulled along behind boats? Clearly because they think they're seals, even though there's no electro magnetic current, no scent, nothing except visual and sound? Ok then. Look, I'm not saying deliberate attacks don't happen, but sharks are not so sophisticated that they know everything in the sea. Their senses are for finding things - exploratory bumps/bites are for figuring them out.
kmkfiction2
kmkfiction2 - 12 years ago
It is disingenous at best to posit that such a finely tuned predator would have such a strident evolutionary disadvantage of not being able to identify, more importantly, differentiate between a fat-rich prey item (seals) and low-fat prey item (humans) without biting into it. Even if that were the case, after a shark bites into a human, surely you cannot credibly contend that the shark doesn't know the difference in taste? Neither make logical sociobiological, evolutionary or practical sense.
kmkfiction2
kmkfiction2 - 12 years ago
You incorrectly presuppose that, for example, the White shark's perceptive faculties cannot identify an object without biting into it. Where is the evidence for such a proposition? As for sharks biting into boats or inanimate objects, I don't see how that is relevant to the theory of mistaken idenity. Sharks dont have hands to investigate foreign objects. But humans & their progenitors are hardly "foreign objects." We are 110% edible. We have a constant, unbroken course of dealing w/ sharks.
nat365
nat365 - 12 years ago
Orcas take the time to figure out what they're attacking. Sharks do not. If they think it might be food, they go for it, if they're not sure what it is, they go for it. All their senses (electricity, blood, sight) tell them that something is there, and that it might be food, so they attack because it's probable. Also, who says our body's electro magnetic current is so different from a seal? Sharks may be able to sense that current, but who says that they can read the current so finely?
nat365
nat365 - 12 years ago
Sharks don't always take the time to figure out what something is before they bite it (in fact, they often bite to find out) - otherwise the phenomenon of sharks biting boats or other inanimate things would make no sense. Also, sharks attack decoy seals all the time, there are a lot of videos of it, and the decoys do not emit current, or bleed or smell; they just look and move like seals, and the sharks see that from underneath and attack because of it. They stop when they realise it's not food.
kmkfiction2
kmkfiction2 - 12 years ago
Last thing. "Mistaken identity theory totally disregards the sharks uniquely adapted perceptive faculties OTHER than sight, e.g., ampullae of lorenzini, hearing, smell and lateral lines. ALL of these enable sharks to quickly identify and differentiate potential meals. The human being does NOT emit the same electro magnetic current as a seal, a turtle or any marine creature at close range.The "theory" turns the science of the shark's lateral lines and other perceptive faculties on its head.
kmkfiction2
kmkfiction2 - 12 years ago
You are making an unfounded assumption based on mere statistical interpretation. It may sound "logical" to you, but the phenomena of human predation abides, e.g., youtube search "shark takes woman's leg." The shark was migrating, hungry and realized a feeding opportunity. The fact "there aren't more shark attacks" is immaterial to understanding the shark's intention under the instant facts. Humans are a known, tertiary prey item. Sharks are opportunistic, generalist feeders. Case closed.
kmkfiction2
kmkfiction2 - 12 years ago
Nothing about the differences between orca & sharks tends to support mistaken identity theory for sharks. The notion that a White/Tiger/Bull shark could "mistake" a human being it has just bumped, smelled and/or tasted to be a seal or other marine life that has a distinctive smell/taste is silly. These sharks are ALL opportunistic, generalist feeders. That is why Tigers and Oceanic Whitetips congregate at maritime disasters, i.e., to eat people. A human is a "distressed animal" in that instance
enzarto
enzarto - 12 years ago
@dobiemama100 so true, i would love to do this one day.
nat365
nat365 - 12 years ago
I'm not saying every shark attack is a case of mistaken identity. They are opportunistic predators in a way that orcas aren't, and thus could well attack a person knowing full well that they weren't a seal. However, if sharks were completely aware of people, it follows pretty logically that there would be a lot more shark attacks than there are. After all, lions that get a taste of humans often go rogue and start hunting us. If we were actually on their list attacks would be far more frequent.
nat365
nat365 - 12 years ago
Sharks recognise things in a different way, so yes a shark could be fooled where an orca would not be. They see and hear better than sharks, and their echo location allows them to know the specific shapes of things. Also, there's usually a group of them, so they can confer about what something is. The way we swim sounds like a distressed animal (we splash a lot), the shadow of a man on a surfboard looks like a seal from below (even to a person) but would not sound like one (echolocation).

And I will second torinNZ. It is a punishable offense to chase them or deliberately get close (I think partly because with bigger boats they could be hurt by the propellors) but if they come towards you it's absolutely fine. There's no 'run away at top speed' rule, simply a 'don't chase' rule. If this were not the case, then all whale watching would be illegal.

dude28mack, that video was proven to be fake. There is no evidence that any orca has acted aggressively upon anyone sea kayaking. They were amateurs on vacation with a guide. People often seek adventerous vacations with their time off. And nowadays we have guidance and equipment to experience the wonder and beauty of these whales. This was probably a once in a lifetime opportunity for these folks. I find it rude for you to chastise them for having an inspiring experience. Maybe you're jealous.

You are right about Orcas, but do you really think sharks' keen perceptive faculties cannot differentiate between a fur seal and human in a wetsuit? "Mistaken identity" theory with sharks has no basis in Science- it is pure speculation and seems to presuppose facts that explain away predation that coincides w/ sharks' ecological niche. True or False.
kmkfiction2

Orcas do not have aggression? Towards people, yes. Aside from people, however, it is difficult to find a species with more aggression. See, e.g., Orcas off Patagonia. I make these inferences dispassionately and with immense love and respect for them.

Its eyepatch is distinctively slanted forwards, instead of parallel to the body axis. Like Type B. It has a dorsal cape. Its only prey observed so far is the Antarctic Cod. Males are typically from 6-8 m long which is19-26 ft and weigh about 6 tonnes. Females are smaller, ranging from 5-7 m about 16-23 ft and weighs 3 to 4 tons.

Naw really, I know that. They are in the dolphin family. There are type A,B, and C orcas. They feed on sea lions, seals, walruses, and even large whales. They're considered the apex predator of the marine world. There are up to five distinct Killer Whale types. They're highly social which means they do not known to hurt humans. Type B and C whales liveAntarctic ice pack and are a different species. Type B is smaller than type A. Type A looks like a typical killer whale and eat Minke Whales.

ok calm down - I didnt say anything about attacking humans, and I didnt say that they shouldnt kill things, I just said they are not nice animals. And the Orcas in the Documentary were wild, not caged. Calm down.

the orca is not a nice whale... I saw a documentary on them and they were killing baby whales. And by the way Orcas are not whales, they are a from of dolphin. They are called 'Killer Whales" because they kill whales.

It's not that they're dangerous. You just have to be carfull. If thy were dangerous then they would have fliped them in the kayak. Or jusmped out of the water and land on top of them. I don't think orcas are bothered by humans unless humans are trying to hurt them. If orcas see you're struggleing to stay above the waterm not garunteeing but they would probably come up from underneith you and give you support. Ever saw Free Willy? It may be a movie but it's based on how orcas really are.

Well I admit I would be nurvous but I don't think they would harm you intentionaly.

Actually if they were to flip over, the orcas would probably save they or help them. Killer whales have that instinked. It's like they can sence when a person is in danger.

Well I'm sure when you see a 6,000lb killer whale coming at you or swimming 3 ft. away from you, even though they're friendly wonderful creatures, I'm sure you would at least get a little freaked out lol. Where can you go to purchase kayaks and tours with orcas?? Do you know? And no I'm not being sarcastic I'm serious.

well i dunno if anyone wants to have sex with an orca.. i certainly don't, beastality isn't something im in to.. i don't think anyone here dedicates their life to them, though there's some researchers that i'm sure do.. but so what? better job than sitting behind a desk in an office for the rest of your life.. yes that is a 'psychedelic' mushroom indeed! you have a problem with them too? :D
