Watch a Killer Whale hunt and kill a Great White Shark

I stumbled across this video, “Great White shark Vs Killer Whale“, on the National Geographic Wild channel on YouTube and it is just incredible. It is apparently very rare to see a Killer Whale kill a Great White Shark:

What is very cool for kids is that the Nat Geo Wild channel has full length episodes freely available on YouTube. This is a terrific educational resource for parents!

Fascinating fact: if you can turn a shark upside down, it calms down. Its apparently a phenomenon called “tonic immobility“.

And then the shark gets it

Boy, you spend some time fishing lazily on the river, catch something and start to reel it in only to have a shark hurl itself out of the water and steal your fish. Sucks, doesn’t it!
