KILLER WHALES VS. FIN WHALE 3.5

Killer Whales vs. Fin Whale. In this rare event, a pod of killer whales hunt and kill a large fin whale. Most the time the fin whales anti-predatory defense strategy keeps it safe, but this time it falls prey to the pod. Witness this spectacular predatory event captured by The One Baja in the Gulf of California.

Getting a little tired of Animal Wire's videos not actually containing the thumbnail photo which enticed me to click.

I came here because the preview showed me a large whale jumping out of the water. I dislike false preview pictures on movies and I repay the gesture by clicking the thumbs down button.

Transient Orcas (the ones in this video) are the ones that eat other whales, sharks, dolphins, seals, etc. Resident Orcas eat fish and other small marine life.

Orcas hunt animals for "sport" but so do humans. Other kinds of dolphins do this as well. It's not uncommon, definitely not rare. If you're so horrified by the fact that animals eat other animals in order to survive, then maybe nature shows/videos aren't the thing for you.

The pic for this vid suggests that the fin whale jumps from the water and lands on the orca.

The thumbnail was super misleading. I was hoping to see an airbourne fin-whale. Still enjoyed the vid though

Or maybe the whale was killed due to the wound it got by the boat 0:45
 I think the boat broke its back.

You never know with them Orcas. So damn smart and still evolving. I wonder what things they do that people haven't seen yet.

btw DO NOT put the word "versus" in the title of the video and you'll avoid a good part of the...people who don't know the difference between a walk in the forest and Mortal Kombat
