Marine Kings

Perhaps, it is possible to admit that 71 per cent of Earth spaces, specifically the World Ocean area, remains under control of marine predatory giants – orcas. Most of the animals living in the aquatic habitat are aware of cruelty and greediness these mammals can express. So, their attacks are horrifying not only for humans, but marine neighbors as well. It is not a rare occurrence, when the belly of hunted orca turns out to be stuffed with numerous bodies of sharks, seals and even dolphins. In particular, orcas are not from whale species, but they are giant dolphins by nature. All in all, this species are famous for their brutality and might be considered true kings of the World Ocean.

It is interesting to know that echolocation is the only thing orcas can rely on. Sounds they produce are high-frequency pulses. The person perceives them as separate clicks. They facilitate hunting and communication between individuals within a stock. In addition, hunting in stocks is a separate theme to consider.

To exemplify the danger rank big orcas can achieve, one should know about the Alaskan situation. In particular, for several years zoologists have been studying the hunting behavior of orcas. Every spring Unimak Island (the east of the Aleutian Islands) experience the same drama, when 150 predators attack the migratory group of grey whales. Most of them are newly born or some years old and, pay attention, they are larger in sizes, which cannot bu8t testify on orcas’ experience and severity. Nearly 1/3 of grey whales become annual victim of orcas’ attacks.

Wandering killer whales (orcas) are the most dangerous. Their hunting strategy is pretty simple and effective. They attack marine animals solely; the process usually starts when several orcas crawl to the young ones, separating them from mothers and fathers and trying to drown them. Nearly 40 individuals stay in the rear. Often gray giants rush in shallow water, where the predator cannot perform an attack. If potential victims defend vigorously from the outset, they can also make hunters to escape by major tail blows. Killer whales prefer to attack the stock of whales at a depth from 15 to 75 meters.

If orcas travel alone, there is also no way marine giants gave up on hunting aggressively. When orca sees a penguin on floating ice rock, it stalks the victim silently and slowly. And then – Bam! With a sudden beat of the head the killer whale breaks rock into pieces and penguinfalls into orca’s mouth just on the dinner time.
