    Not sure if this National Geographic video has been around for a while, but I'm impressed!

    Not too graphic, but be warned: the shark loses. :shock:

    Oh my goodness...

    Before I saw this, I was scared every time I was in the vacinity of Transient Orca... now I'm going to be down right petrified.

    Gotta respect the dolphins!

    I laughed at the part where the fellow said the orca brought the shark to the boat like a cat bringing it's owner a mouse. Nice kitty, er, killer whale. :lol:

    It's a favourable thing that we're on their good side -- please, don't anyone go ticking off any killer whales.

    Dan's got a couple of pictures where (I now realize) he was trolling for killer whales.
    I think it was at a new year's swim a few years ago.

    I think that "Sharky" sleeps with the fishes.
