    I Like this quote I dislike this quote“[One study involved killer whales at Marineland in Niagara Falls in Ontario, Canada. An inventive male devised a brand new way to catch birds, and passed the strategy on to his tank-mates. The 4-year-old orca lures gulls into his tank by spitting regurgitated fish onto the water's
surface. He waits below for a gull to grab the fish, then lunges at it with open jaws.] They are in a way setting a trap, ... They catch three or four gulls this way
some days.”

    I Like this quote I dislike this quote“It was once believed that most animal behavior, from the food they ate to the places they slept, was based on instinct. This new discovery supports the growing view that animals like killer whales are very prone to learning by imitation, and that they are 'cultural' in nature.”
