    Saw it on Untamed Nature on The National Geographic Channel.

    Off the coast of Southern California.

    The Killer Whale attacks the Great White Shark (both approx equal size) - turns it upside down, drowns it, then eats it.

    So now we know.

    How do you drown a shark?

    Killer Whales are air breathers........ not sharks.

    Sharks breath through their gills.

    The Killer Whale held it underwater upside down for 15 minutes.

    The attack sequence is speculation.......

    A full grown orca dwarfs the biggest great whites.............

    What throws most people off is that Orcas can be so cuddly - like Namu and Shamu etc....
