This was a fascinating event to watch. We came across some orcas eating a gray whale. Not sure if the orcas had killed it or if it had died of natural causes and the orcas had just come across it. The males eat the tongue first and then the others have a crack at it. Interstingly, there was no blood visible, perhaps due to how cold the water is in the Bering Sea.
