They are not dumb animals
On the whale watching expedition I mentioned, the marine
naturalist on board said that different pods of orcas specialize in different kinds of prey. We were over to the Santa Cruz
vicinity because they knew all this was going on. There were humpbacks in the distance. I thought they were keeping an eye on the orcas because some eat baby whales. However, the naturalist said that the humpbacks know the orca pods and know which ones are a danger
Shortly after that the humpbacks actually swam over to the orcas and they all appeared to be ... playing together. "Don't eat my babies and we can be friends," I guess ... The naturalist commented -- "This is remarkable, seeing three kinds of marine
mammals together in the water at the same time... Of course, one of them is dead ..."
Maybe you had to be there.
