Fair enough. I can get behind that. I still find it intriguing that they only go after MEKWs. That would mean that they recognize dfferent languages so to speak. I know of no other mammals that do this with such precision. Also that Killer whales have different words for food that humpbacks can recognize.

Sea mammals are definitely not dumb........but then Orca's are mammals too (largest member of the Dolphin family). Orca's really intrigue me in that they are truly superb hunters but also kill for fun......and yet i haven't heard of a single account of an Orca attacking a human in the wild - they do in Seaworld but then wouldn't you in there position?
I'm sure it must have happened at some point but i can't recall hearing about it.
