  • Orcas Attack Great White Shark - Neptune Islands, South Australia.


    Read about this epic event here

    Apex predator vs Apex predator! It is a rare opportunity that one has to witness a battle of nature that is of such raw power, where the only certainty is that only one will survive and the clash will be violent and spectacular.

    Such was the confrontation that was witnessed 20 metres off the back of Adventure Bay Charters Shark Diving vessel Shark Warrior, at the Neptune Islands off Port Lincoln, South Australia.

    This video is an eye-witness account of the moment a pod of Orca's attacked and killed a Great White Shark while amazed customers and Adventure Bay Charters crew looked on.

    Every person on the boat that day will remember what they witnessed for the rest of their lives.

    Thanks to Mark Thomas from Missing Link Media Port Lincoln for putting this video together and our great passengers on that day for sharing their footage.

    A POD of killer whales have been filmed for the first time hunting and killing a TIGER SHARK. The footage, which is believed to be a world-first, was captured off the coast of Costa Rica by underwater photographer Caroline Power and British marine biologist Nicholas Bach. It shows three killer whales working as a team to force the panicked shark to the surface, wearing it down and taking opportunistic bites at its fins. Eventually, a large bull moves in to deliver the death blow while flipping the shark onto its back in the process - which induces a state of paralysis known as tonic immobility. The pod then takes turns at eating and stripping the seven-foot shark down to its bare bones before disappearing back into the ocean. The attack took place at Chatham Bay on Cocos Island, Costa Rica, on September 8.

  • Why NO Aquarium In The WORLD Has A Great White Shark!


    Why NO Aquarium In The WORLD Has A Great White Shark!

    #viral #amazing #100M #animals

    Why Great White Sharks Are
    Not Kept In Aquariums
    If you've ever been to an Aquarium, you would notice one thing immediately. Well, not immediately, but
    you would notice it eventually.
    And it's the fact that the Aquarium has no great white shark. And that's not only true for the Aquarium
    in your state alone. It's true for Aquariums all over the world.
    But why is this so? Why can't we capture Great White Sharks and get them in Aquariums? Are they
    impossible to capture, or have we not just thought of it?
    Well, there are ten good reasons why you've never seen a Great White Shark in an Aquarium, and you
    only need to continue watching to learn these ten reasons.
    Reason one will definitely make you mushy.
    #10 They Are Difficult To Capture
    First off, let's get a few things straight. A lot of Aquariums have tried to capture Great White Sharks. It
    has just proven to be impossible.
    This is because a Great White Shark is one of the hardest sharks to capture. This is not only because it is
    large, but because it is also quite aggressive. For example, man could only even capture one as recently
    as 1955.
    While, you might say that 1955 isn't that recent, and that's true. But we don't even know when man
    learned to capture wild animals like lions and tigers. Our ancestors have been doing that for so long that
    many kings had tamed wild animals in their palaces.
    However, our first attempt at taming a Great White Shark came just about 70 years ago. To make things
    worse, that first attempt was a failure. The first great white shark to be held in captivity was just held for
    less than a day.
    So yeah, before you can even think of having a great white shark in an Aquarium, you have to capture it
    first— and we can tell you that that's not easy.
    At all
    #9 They Are Difficult To Transport

    Great White Sharks are large animals. Some reach up to twenty feet and they can weigh up to 1,100
    kilograms. That's a lot.
    And one thing that we've learnt over the years is that transporting an animal of that size from one side
    of the ocean to another isn't the easiest thing in the world.
    For some Aquariums, the trouble just isn't worth it. Given that Great Whites are difficult to capture, the
    fact that Aquariums have to go through so much hassle to transport them again just makes the whole
    venture unrealistic.
    We know what you must be thinking— well, aren't orcs and dolphins in Aquariums? Well, none of them
    is quite as large and as aggressive as Great White Sharks. That's why they are called Great White Sharks.
    #8 Lack Of Resources
    How rich do you think your regular Aquarium is? Do you think they are rolling in wads of cash, or do you
    think they are struggling to get by?
    Don't worry, your answer literally doesn't matter. The fact is that it's way too expensive to catch a Great
    White Shark, and many Aquariums don't just see it as being worth it.
    Scientists say that to catch a Great White Shark, you'd have to provide a few things. The first thing you'd
    need to provide is a tank and an open water pen. This is because you can't just tag a Great White Shark,
    drug it, put it in ice, load it in a plane, and then fly it over to wherever the Aquarium is.
    It just doesn't work that way.
    To transport even a small Great White Shark, you'd have to have an open water pen that can hold at
    least 3.78 million litres of water with a depth of at least 10.6 meters. In addition to that, the Aquarium
    has to keep the Great White in an open water pen that can take 15 million litres of water before even
    transferring it to the Aquarium's facilities.
    As you can see, all this will cost a lot of money, and only a few Aquariums can actually afford to pay this
    much to have a Great White Shark.
    But what of those who can pay? Why don't they have a Great White Shark?

    #5 They Are A Danger To Others And
    If a Great White Shark is kept with any other shark, the likelihood that the Great White kills it and eats it
    within a day or two is very high. So, not only is catching a Great White Shark as a chore on its own, it can
    even be expensive in other ways.
    Imagine buying a pet and finding out that that pet killed the other pet that you had before. That's
    exactly how it is like.

    And as you may know, the other marine animals that the Great White may kill are actually pretty
    expensive to get. It's not an easy task getting them, and most Aquariums can't deal with sharks killing
    each other in their facilities.
    To make things worse, Great White Sharks rarely allow even human beings to feed them. This
    sometimes leads them to die of starvation.

  • Release the killer whales! | DW Documentary


    In the Spanish holiday resort Tenerife, orcas, so-called killer whales, are trained to perform in shows. Mercedes Hernandez is fighting to stop these shows. Her son, an orca trainer, was killed during a show.

    Orca shows are a big tourist attraction in the Loro Parque theme park on the Spanish holiday island of Tenerife. But animal rights campaigners argue that keeping these killer whales cooped up in small pools is cruel. Mercedes Hernandez would also like to see an end to orca shows. Her son was an orca trainer and was killed by one of them. She dealt with her grief by becoming an expert on orcas, and she believes the attack on her son occurred not because the whale was inherently aggressive but because it was kept in captivity. Loro Parque’s operators reject her theory. A report by Michael Altenhenne.

    When it comes to nature, looks can be deceiving. Despite being the biggest creature in the ocean, blue whales do not sit on top of the food chain. While they could probably gobble up everything in sight, they choose to feast on krill, which are really, really tiny. Pretty ironic if you think about it. What about sharks? Their fierce, imposing looks make people fear for their lives, though the movie Jaws is partly to blame for that. However, they aren’t the baddest bullies in the ocean. That honor belongs to the orca, also known as the killer whale. Hang on a second. Orcas are soooooo cuuuuuuute and cuddly! Kind of like a panda, but in water. Also, why is the orca called a killer whale, when in fact, it’s a dolphin? Look at it! How could a killer whale that’s technically a dolphin possibly be the big boss of the ocean world?
    First off, I feel you. It's unbelievable that something so friendly-looking is actually a villain. Just look at it side by side with a great white shark. The shark's so sharp and angular-looking, like an intimidating warship. In contrast, the orca looks so bubbly, plump, and squishy, like The Beatles' Yellow Submarine. In fact, orcas are the biggest member of the dolphin family, growing to 8 meters in length. Okay, not exactly the biggest of all marine creatures, but bigger isn't always better. And while they have razor-sharp teeth, they're not that huge, given their size. However, what makes orcas the indisputable kings of the sea are their enormous brains.
    Being dolphins, orcas are among the most intelligent mammals on the planet. No wonder they're a staple of water park entertainment. However, an orca's intelligence isn't just for party tricks. It's a vital tool in its arsenal that makes it a full-blown underwater assassin. It doesn't just attack its prey head-on. It always has a cunning plan up its sleeve, or pectoral fin in orca-language.
    Orcas are apex predators, meaning no animals hunt them. They search for their prey via echolocation, which utilizes sound to locate other objects. Orcas create sound waves which travel in water. They don't just use sounds to communicate with other orcas. The waves echo off potential prey, helping orcas locate them. If the concept sounds familiar, well, it's the same principle behind sonar, which ships and submarines utilize to navigate waters. Comparing the orca to a submarine kind of makes sense, right? Once an orca has its next meal in its crosshairs, it's time to give chase. It could swim at a 34 mph top speed. Not exactly the fastest swimmer, but given its size, that's a pretty impressive feat. In fact, the orca is about as fast as a US Navy-issued attack submarine. Okay, enough submarine talk! Back to hunting.
    Here’s a bunch of baby seals in shallow water, surrounded by rocks. While their mother could go in and out of the area with no problems, bigger animals, like orcas, cannot. This environment allows baby seals to practice swimming while remaining shielded from predators. During low tide, mommy orca couldn’t invade the area due to the rocky barriers, so she waits for the tide to rise. Clever! Once the tide is high enough, she sneaks into the area with one of her calves in tow.
    However, the water is still too shallow for mommy orca to grab a baby seal, so she waits for one of them to come closer before it strikes. This move is risky since she and her little one could get beached when the tide comes down. Fortunately, lady luck is on her side.
    As you've just seen, orcas could hold their own when going alone, but they usually prefer hunting in packs. Take this team of orcas, for example. A seal on top of floating ice is barely a challenge for these guys. They poke their heads above water, then dive back in. They've given up! Or have they? Well, they're just getting started. Underwater, they perform coordinated maneuvers to create little tsunamis, knocking the seal into the water. Yes, the tasty seal could always scoot back to the ice sheet, but it wouldn't deter an orca squadron from trying again and again. In fact, the waves from these orcas have another purpose. They break the ice into smaller pieces until the seal has nowhere else to go. So tactical!
    Let’s talk about one of the orca’s enemies: the great white shark. While a fearsome creature, it’s no match for an orca. When great white sharks see orcas in their hunting grounds, they flee. A pack of orcas’ approach to the great white shark is nothing short of strategic. They continuously ram the shark to weaken it, then they try to flip it upside down using their powerful tails, leaving it immobile. And then, it’s chowtime.

    This Is Why ORCAS Are Called KILLER WHALES!

    This video takes us through the answer to why Orcas are called Killer Whales. Yes, an enormous body mass, razor-sharp teeth, and an overall deadly outlook would be quite daunting, especially when we come across it face to face.

    It is usually human tendency to assume that large sea creatures are deadly, however, one would be quite surprised to know that this may not always be the case!

    Rather we need to consider other things like their hunting skills, their speed, and of course their appetite. However, you must still be wondering why Orcas are called killer whales right? Well, this is something that had originated from ancient sailors!

    Oops! We may have said a little too much already! If you are really looking for the answer to this question and wish to further learn about Orcas and how they have got their name then you would have to watch the video!

    Might we also let you in on a little secret? We have also included a few nifty cool details about Orcas as well such as how they might catch their prey near the end of the video!

    Everybody knows sharks as the top predator in the ocean. Sharp teeth, scary eyes, and an injured face give them a dangerous looking. But that is wrong, the real king of the ocean is the killer whale. The killer whale is at the top of the ocean food chain. They do not even have natural predators in the ocean.

    Why Sharks Are Afraid Of Orcas?
    Have you ever thought that the great white shark could be a scaredy-cat? Well, we believe you didn't think so! Then we can bet you will be surprised to know that now someone can make the legendary shark flee from its territory.

    Shark Vs Killer Whales

    Everyone believes that sharks and whales are from the same family. However, do you think that's true? No, it's not true because there are lots of difference between them. Well, to quench your curiosity, let's have a look at some exciting characteristics that make sharks different from killer whales:
    Type Of Vertebrates
    Did you know that sharks are fish? Well, the funny thing is many people used to call shark the “beast of the ocean”. Although, the shark is a fish vertebrate due to its rigid backbone. In contrast, whales are mammals that are a whole different class of vertebrate. Moreover, their skin appears to be smoother than the stiff skin of sharks.
    Did you have any idea that the skeleton of seemingly alike animals could be different? Then you will be astonished to know that skeleton of sharks is made of cartilage.
    Source of Breathing
    Have you ever thought about how sharks breathe in deep water? If you do, we will tell you that they have exceptional talent to take oxygen from the water. Sharks can do it due to gills. These organs have a feather-like appearance and are present at the rim of the shark's head.

    Nature of Blood
    You will surely be surprised to know that both these animals have different nature of blood. The great sharks are cold-blooded, or you can say ectothermic, which means they can't control their body temperature. Instead, they adjust according to their environment.

    Tug-of-War Between Sharks And Orcas
    Everyone knows that a shark is fast, strong and has sharp teeth that are 16-foot long. Surprising right? Although, it seems like there is something that makes this giant shark flee. That's right! Do you want to know who terrifies the great white sharks?
    That is Orcas, and they are called killer whales. You will be amazed to know that its name speaks of its actions. Once five sharks were found dead at the seashore of South Africa. Their parts like liver, heart and fins were missing, and the sight was unbelievable.

    Unexpected Incidents
    The tug-of-war between sharks and Oscar has been happening for a long time. However, many unexpected incidents have come to the surface now. Did you know anyone who has witnessed Oscar killing the sharks?

    Vanishing Of Sharks
    You will be surprised to know that once orcas attacked the white sharks. Then the sharks could not take the blow and abandon the area known to be their hunting ground. According to 2015 records, sharks only vanished for a month.

    Effects On Ecosystem
    The disappearance of sharks from their territory marked an impact on the ecosystem. The shifting of top predators is casual,
    It seems insignificant, but this small action can cause an ecological shift. Moreover, the impact could be direct or indirect. The immediate effect was the constant decrease in sharks' population due to the attacks of orcas.
    Why Are Sharks Afraid of Orcas?
    Well, we can’t deny that both white shark and orcas are frightening predators. Although, according to research, orcas seem to be more daunting. Even an observation tells us that whenever a pod of orcas comes around California's southeast island.

  • This Is Why Orcas Are Called Killer Whales


    An orca is a marine mammal. They are often confused for being a whale because of their name ‘killer whale’, but did you know that orcas are actually dolphins? In fact, they are the largest member of the dolphin family!

    Why are orcas called 'killer whales' when they are dolphins?
    Dolphins and whales are closely related. Orcas were given the name ‘killer whale’ by ancient sailors’ observations of groups of orcas hunting and preying on larger whale species. They called orcas asesina ballenas, or ‘whale killer’ – a term that was eventually flipped around to the easier ‘killer whale’. Their Latin name, Orcinus orca, also reflects this observation of orcas feeding on large whales. Orcinus translates to ‘of the kingdom of the dead,’ and orca refers to a kind of whale. We know that orcas are top predators, yes, but not the vicious ‘whale killers’ that the ancient mariners thought them to be. If you could give orcas another name, what would you call them?
    Adults show some differences in appearance between the sexes. Males can grow up to approximately 8 metres and weigh over 5 tonnes. Females are smaller, growing up to about 7 metres and weighing up to 3 tonnes. Males have an impressively tall dorsal fin.
    Orcas Scare White Sharks
    When orcas and white sharks confront one another, it is the white shark that flees. Research conducted at the Monterey Bay Aquarium in California followed a group of white sharks for several months.3 These sharks always fed in the same place, but when two pods of orcas arrived, the sharks fled and did not return for months.

    Killer whales are also referred to as orcas, which is derived from their scientific name, Orcinus orca. Although killer whales are not considered a threat to humans in the wild, they will eat almost anything that crosses their path.

    An orca is a marine mammal.

    They are often confused for being a whale because of their name ‘killer whale’, but did you know that orcas are actually dolphins? In fact, they are the largest member of the dolphin family!
    Orcas are incredibly popular as they are the most widely distributed of all whales and dolphins, found in every single ocean! They are very familiar with their black and white colouring but actually, depending on where they live, have very different appearances, behaviour, ways of communicating and diet! Find out some amazing facts below about the incredible orcas.

    Why are orcas called 'killer whales' when they are dolphins?

    Dolphins and whales are closely related. Orcas were given the name ‘killer whale’ by ancient sailors’ observations of groups of orcas hunting and preying on larger whale species. They called orcas asesina ballenas, or ‘whale killer’ – a term that was eventually flipped around to the easier ‘killer whale’. Their Latin name, Orcinus orca, also reflects this observation of orcas feeding on large whales. Orcinus translates to ‘of the kingdom of the dead,’ and orca refers to a kind of whale. We know that orcas are top predators, yes, but not the vicious ‘whale killers’ that the ancient mariners thought them to be. If you could give orcas another name, what would you call them?

    What do orcas eat?

    Looking at all populations, orcas are generalist eaters, consuming fish, seals and sea lions, dolphins and porpoises, sharks and rays, large whales, cephalopods (octopods and squids), seabirds and more. However, some orcas specialise on specific prey, and it turns out orcas are picky eaters! Once they’ve learned what their family eats, they aren’t likely to switch diets.
    How do orcas sleep?

    Orcas sleep in a very different way to humans. We have a breathing reflex and when we sleep or become unconscious, we continue to breath automatically. Orcas cannot sleep in this way, they have to remain conscious, even when they are sleeping! This is because their breathing is not automatic - they have to actively decide when to breath, and so they must be conscious even when sleeping. If like us, orcas went into a deep unconscious sleep, they would stop breathing and suffocate or drown.
    To get around this, orcas only allow one half of their brains to sleep at a time; the other half stays alert enabling them to continue breathing whilst looking out for dangers in the environment. They only close one eye when they sleep; the left eye will be closed when the right half of the brain sleeps, and vice versa. This type of sleep is known as unihemispheric sleep as only one brain hemisphere sleeps at a time. Orcas periodically alternate which side is sleeping so that they can get the rest they need without ever losing consciousness. When sleeping, orcas swim very slowly and steadily, close to the surface.

    How do orcas communicate?

    In orca populations, knowledge is passed down to younger individuals from their elders – what to eat and were to find it, how to catch it, who to avoid, vocalisations and calls unique to pods and family groups, and the distinct ‘accent’ of the population. Having multiple prey items to choose from probably led to the niche specialisations we see today – millions of year ago, different groups started eating different things to avoid competing for the same food. Now these groups are genetically different, in addition to their unique appearance and cultures.

  • This Is Why Orcas Are Called Killer Whales


    In todays video, we will be checking out why Orcas are also known as killer whales. As we look at reasons why they are called killer whales instead as they known to kill for fun making them an apex predator of the ocean

    When you think of top ocean predators, you probably think of Sharks, but be prepared to have your mind changed.

  • Orca vs Great White Shark! Who’s the Real King of the Oceans?


    When you hear the name ‘Great White Shark’ you instantly think of this notorious creature, a source of fear, a top-notch predator with one of the most remarkable hunting behaviors documented in the natural world. Helped by the many Hollywood movies, its reputation as king of the oceans was rock solid until another creature came into the picture. This creature is The Orca, also known as the killer whale.

  • This is why Orcas are called Killer Whales


    Orcas are most intelligent animals on planet earth. Orcas are very social and emotional animals. Orcas have the second largest brain.
    Orcas have a highly developed set of brain lobes called paralimbic system, compared to land mammals, including humans.
    When you think of top predator of the ocean you think of shark, that's wrong. The true ruler of the ocean is the killer whale, surprisingly they are not whales, they are dolphins. it’s hard to believe that a cute animal like dolphin is ruling the ocean.
