A pod of orcas chasing a stingray near the rocks. In this video you can see some of the orcas turning upside down, they hunt like this so that they can grab the stingray and turn it over. By turning it over the stingray goes into a catatonic state known as “tonic immobility”. This state is also known behaviour in sharks used for mating. By turning the stingray over the orca ensures that its target animal will be unable to fight back and use it’s dangerous barb. Video Courtesy: New Zealand to the world | Facebook
