    What amazes me about the orcas is the level of their intelligence.
    To precisely remove the liver of the shark.
    How on earth would an orca know that the liver of a shark is beyond the scope of human understanding.

    And no recorded attacks on humans by orcas. Ever. Seems to me they are our very close cousins.

    Laugh & pile on scorn if you must, but if these magnificent creatures are still around in 100 years, I bet your entire life savings (anyone) that science will finally have learned how to communicate with them & we will know the truth.

    Clownface usually has all the answers, but this one is tough.

    It is possible and likely that it is simply because they have not yet learned to. Or maybe we just taste like sh1t??

    I may have posted this before on another thread...

    Two great white sharks swimming in the ocean spied survivors of a sunken ship.

    "Follow me son" the father shark said to the son shark and they swam to the mass of people.

    "First we swim around them a few times with just the tip of our fins showing." And they did.

    "Well done, son! Now we swim around them a few times with all of our fins showing." And they did.

    "Now we eat everybody." And they did.

    When they were both gorged, the son asked, "Dad, why didn't we just eat them all at first? Why did we swim around and around them?"

    His wise father replied, "Because they taste better if you scare the crap out of them first!"

    id say theres probably not many or no attacks from orcas because they are usually pretty far out,well beyond the surf zone.a 3 ton beast or however much they weight lol isn't going to be crusing by in 6' of water.

    I'm sure tho if u were on a boat and seen a pod come swimming underneath and u jumped in the middle of them they'd probably kill you

    No safety net in S.A. bru.. You're assuming the shark spotters are actually awake, paying attention and not stoned. Hard to tell with their big polarized glasses. The flag that flies most on the Atlantic side, is white flag with a black shark. (I think, or is the black flag with white shark) basically, conditions are not conducive to accurate spotting...Use at own risk.. Lots of stuff in the water there, not your typical paddle outs..

    They are white tips, not great whites, they roam the ocean like it's a vast desert and Reunion is an oasis for them.

    I remember when I was a kid they used to try to fish all the sharks out down here, shark tournaments. The lowest form of fishing, no skill required. They are the locals. Get over it.
