      It’s true that Killer Whales that eat sharks have worked out that if you flip a shark upside down, the shark becomes dazed and immobile and then it’s easier for the whale to kill the shark without fear of getting injured.

      This is a great example of how intelligent Orcas are and how adaptable to different food sources they are. However, it doesn’t mean they are more intelligent than people
