    An Orca killed one and ate only it's liver. It happened in the Farralons one year.

    Wow! I had no idea. Thanks for posting. I grew up diving in Cape Town - surrounded by them. Very sad story. I believe that everything changed when they started “tourist chumming”.

    I'm not sure they actually know the answer to that question though it was touched upon.

    It's interesting that there are reports of more great whites along the eastern coast of the US this year.

    Orcas are amazing animals. I like Makos and Great Whites. They don't seem so fearsome knowing they too have weaknesses like the rest of inhabitants.
