🔥 150 dolphins charge past boat fleeing Orca hunt in BC, Canada

🔥 150 dolphins charge past boat fleeing Orca hunt in BC, Canada

Wouldn’t they be faster underwater?


yerrrrrrp

Maybe they have to come up for breath so often because they’re using a lot of energy at those speeds


Bradleyisfishing

Yes, but that’s not why they jump. The orca is a predator built to catch dolphins, so they are going to be faster. If they aren’t faster, they will be able to catch them somehow. If they are in the air, it’s much harder to get caught than if they are just dodging in the water.

Dolphins can temporarily go faster than an orca, but they don't have endurance to keep it up. If an Orca chases, they will catch up at some point.


AstralWulfxiii

Pfft I just saw a video where an orca booped a dolphin mid air.

Link?

Make sure you don't have a typo when searching for this. You'll end up being scarred for life.

Orca pooped the dolphin mid air? I'd watch

This reply makes no sense? Dolphins are faster. Most orca’s hunt in groups and coordinate their attacks. Orca’s normally bump into dolphins to catch/stun/daze them, after which they will bite and kill their target.


Bradleyisfishing

Orcas do 35 mph and dolphins can max out at 37, that’s pretty close.


EffectiveMinute4625

Less drag in the air


philjorrow

Harder to catch when jumping.


Shockingelectrician

That must be crazy for them being intelligent animals. Just hanging out fishing and all of a sudden oh fuck! Having to book it away from these huge, also intelligent super predators. There’s not really anywhere to hide in the ocean too if you have to come up for air.

Poor dolphins, they’re most mostly endangered. Fucking humans


SecurelyObscure

Bottlenose dolphins aren't endangered at all


Orbus_215

Those aren't bottlenose


SecurelyObscure

What are they?


Orbus_215

Not sure specifically, but you can see the dark markings on their back along their body. Bottlenose are purely gray.


SecurelyObscure

Ohh yeah, hadn't seen that before. White sided dolphin, maybe.


TigerQueen_11

They look like common dolphins but the resolution isn’t great for me. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Common_dolphin


[deleted]

I'm thinking either Pacific white-sided or duskies. The beaks look too stubby to be common dolphins.


kiwi-and-his-kite

Looking at you, Faroe Islands… 😒


Contundo

They are not endangered … classified as least concern


Iceman_Pasha

Depends on the species, a few have gone extinct in the last 2-3 decades


Aporkalypse_Sow

How'd they get the dolphins to do it again, but slower?


Bale_the_Pale

You see, dolphins are very smart...


-Jasked-

I only counted 149...


Human_Camp

Guess the orca got 1


Iceman_Pasha

You know what they say, you dont have to out run danger, just those you're with.


WaterWetRocksHard

OMG! I came here to make this SAME joke and I was gonna use 149 too. Lol.


Btravelen

Where's the Orca?


BrobdingnagianMember

Watching from above.


Portentia9

Run, babies, run! Run like the wind!!


TreshKJ

Why is the boat fleeing the orca hunt?


_0neTwo_

Poorly worded title but the dolphins are actually fleeing not the boat


JuddOutdoors

That is EPIC!!


eternalspirit25

If the first human ever saw this, I’d think they’d naturally go in the same direction as that pod for fear something more sinister is chasing them.


Brostradamus--

These dolphins don't look like they're running track lol. They'd probably be scared for their lives while staring down this swarm of angry, grey, alien, water bananas coming straight for them.


valandil74

The orca mafia orca-strated an excellent hit under the guise of a stampede


welostthepig

Fuck-a-u, doe-fin!


Substantial-Shine-81

Fuck-a u whaaaale!


onegaishimasushinde

How do you know it’s not just a dolphin race?


mottylthecat

I’m not cetacean expert, but I don’t see any orcas. Also, most west coast orcas eat salmon or pinnipeds.


NascentScorpio

I would've just sat there while they were coming at me thinking "this is it, this is the day the world changed, this is the day the dolphin nation attacked."


Picnut

Enough intelligence to understand that they need to run away


Snippy_Snallygaster

I mean, a lot of animal animals do that...


Picnut

I meant that you can't see the orca hunt, but that they know it is there. I know they are very intelligent as well


WaterWetRocksHard

ALL animals instinctively (not intelligently) understand they need to flee predators. ALL.


Picnut

I meant that you can't even see the orca hunt, but they still know what is going on


GermanShephrdMom

This is a weird/unnecessary comment?


Picnut

Commented too late at night. Tired brain. I meant that even though we can't see the orca hunt, they know to get out of the area quickly.


Substantial-Shine-81

Swim away!!


AccordionORama

Is it really faster to swim and jump like that instead of just swimming? If so, I find it surprising.


dani_c_b

Boing boing boing


QueenofMars420

I'm just wondering, how do they actually count groups that big?


thepaddlegal

Why are the orcas hunting a boat?


soreros

Flight of the valkryie 🎶🎶🎶


BellyUpBernie

If I saw that I’d get that strong feeling that something bad is headed my way.


Pookie_dook_

Im fast as fuck boiii


crystal_aesthetic

Whalers should get with the modern times or get a bullet. Few worst professional all around despicable scum.


BootyDaBoy

Doesn’t look like 150 but okay 👌


Peaked-too-soon

Someone actually bothered to count them.....what a geek

I truly wish Neptune would reclaim the ocean and this is the first sign.
