KILLER WHALES VS. FIN WHALE

3,601,806 views 8 months ago
Killer Whales vs. Fin Whale. In this rare event, a pod of killer whales hunt and kill a large fin whale. Most the time the fin whales anti-predatory defense strategy keeps it safe, but this time it falls prey to the pod. Witness this spectacular predatory event captured by The One Baja in the Gulf of California.
