Video: Orca mom passes unique hunting skills to her calf

Posted By on December 6, 2011

I don’t watch the BBCLife or NatGeo all that regularly, I do appreciate their fantastic documentaries and brilliant filming. In the above video a Killer Whale passes her unique skills to her calf in hunting elephant seals. The “low volume” audio in this clip describes the danger and intelligence required by these animals to navigate the shallow pools in order to hunt the young elephant seals.
