Wolves scare the tar out of me...

Smart predators. :oops:
Orca whales scare me. Another freakishly smart predator.

There is a story that a few years ago the captive whales at sea world were tired of eating the buckets of fish parts the trainers were tossing in there. One day one of the alpha whales ate the food, then barfed it out & went to the bottom of the tank. When a seagull came down to eat the barfed up fish, the whale launched up & ate the seagull. All the other whales were watching & within a ridiculously short period of time they were all baiting & eating seagulls.

Have you seen the videos where they come all the way on to the shore to eat a seal, or of them killing giant sharks? The one that scares me the most is the video of the pod of orcas swimming next to a speeding speed boat. I stopped breathing a little when I saw that one. :th

It has never occurred to me to be afraid of Orcas. But where I live, it's highly unlikely that I will ever run into one....

Yes... those scare me too.

I watched a video once of a pod of orcas killing some huge peaceful whale... so bad... :(

Stupid predators are so much better!!!

I completely get why early settlers tried to exterminate wolves... :oops:
