with their calves for the attention of whale watchers…including getting touched. Grey whales are not aggressive although they do react towards boats Football it’s not how big you are it’s how big you play quilt that they appear to perceive as threats occassionally. Their teeth are for grabbing and they feed using suction.

you were on a roll until the KW info. KWs are curious about humans but have no interest in eating them. They are intelligent. As for killing anything that threatens their calves…they have 2 threats. The first is large sharks and the second is humans. sperm whales will attack boats. It isn’t a behavior that we expect with every encounter but they can be aggressive and ram a boat. Football it’s not how big you are it’s how big you play quilt It’s likely they do this when aggitated at a perceived threat or act of aggression by a boat. Thank you for all that data. I do consider Orcas as the apex predators of the sea
(no real-life interactions yet) and in comparison (only) with Sperm whales, I was mentioning them as dangerous. In a world where snails kill many fold more humans than Whales & Sharks put together, we are scared of their bulk I guess. Like you said in the 1st comment, I did read an article where marine biologists (I hope they were) put rice and Sargasso weed in a Blue Whale’s mouth and it is said to have spit them out instantly. Looking for a credible link for citation. Grey whales do not have teeth and they are hardly considered aggressive! These are the same whales that come to boats
