Orcas Show Young How To Hunt Seals

In this sweet video, Orca whales teach the young ones how to create a wave to knock a seal off of a floating piece of ice so they can get at it. Pretty cool.

Shows how hunting for Orca whales is not something that is determined in their genes, but rather something that is passed down from one generation to the next. And don't miss the very end where the whales put the seal back on the ice rather than eating it!
