Just when you think the orcs could not be more amazing, they are getting even better. New evidence suggests that these whales really scare away the worst beast in the sea. So. Orcs dropped a big white shark from their throne's "ape ape".
A team of marine scientists has found that large white sharks ( Carcharodon carcharias ) will make themselves extremely scant when they detect the presence of killer whales ( Orcinus orca )
. "White whales encountered by the killer whales will immediately release their best hunting grounds and will not return during the year, even if the mowers are just passing," said marine ecologist Salvador Jorgensen of the Monterey Bay Aquarium
collected data from two sources: arrivals and departures 1
The team also documented four encounters between large white sharks and killer whales in the Great Peninsula of Great Faroalones. Sanctuary, which they then could analyze against other data.
The data showed that whenever the orcs were in the region – as at any time – the sharks made a quick exit, the stage remained, and remained aloof to the next season. They wanted to go away for a few minutes, even when the killer whales stayed less than an hour.
And it was a wonderful beneficiary: compaction of elephants ( Mirouna narrow-necked ), inhabiting the coastline and covered by large white sharks.
"On average, we document about 40 predators of white shark elephant events on the southeast island of Farallon Island every season," said Scot Anderson marine biologist from Monterey Bay Aquarium. "After the killer whales are present, we do not see any sharks and there are no more murders."
Transitional killer whales also knew that they were eating the dens of an elephant, but these visits to whales are not common. Live killer whales eat fish
Sharks did not always go far. Sometimes they moved only at a safe distance along the coast, where they were close to different colonies of compaction of elephants. Sometimes, however, they went to the middle of the Pacific, in the region it was called the White Shark Cafe
. Some of them measure more than 5.5 meters from the nose to the tail, and are probably very accustomed to getting their own path wherever they go. But 5.5 meters on the small side for the killer whales, which can hunt for whales much more than them, so they are unlikely to easily disperse.
In addition, the killer whale watched on large white sharks around the world. , including near Farallon Islands. It is still somewhat unclear why, but Araki killed by Orcs, which are washed off to the shore (one of them is depicted in the upper part of the page), lose their liver – their tasty, rich in petroleum, high-grade liver vitamins
Sharks instinctively avoid predators , which can easily be emptied of them, or whether the transient processes in the past have been bullied with sharks from a food source with a seal of an elephant.
"I think it demonstrates how the food chains are
" Not always linear ", – said Jorgensen.
" The so-called lateral interactions between the leading predators are quite well known on land but it is much more difficult to document them in the ocean And because this happens so rarely, it may take some time
