Pseudorcas Safe From Orcas? False!

Gnarly stuff to share this morning: killer whales going after pseudorca whales off the coast of New Zealand. A good friend of mine is currently visiting family down under, and apparently she was able to see much of this action in person!  (Lisa, if you’re reading this, I’m terribly jealous!)

It’s not easy to tell if the orca’s are going after the pseudorca adult or calf that’s visible in the breach, nor is it clear whether or not this is feeding behavior or perhaps a territorial dispute.  Whatever the motivation, its pretty amazing footage.
