Those intelligent killer whales

Here’s something incredible: killer whales that have developed the ability to hunt seals and sea lions on the shoreline.

National Geographic scientists spotted two orcas on the beaches of Argentina, riding waves onto the shore, grabbing seals, and then using their fins to “walk” back into deeper water. Apparently, the whales are teaching each other how to do this. That’s pretty amazing when you consider that these animals weigh 6 tons and are almost 30 feet long.
