Sharks are known to be one of the most dangerous of sea creatures, and are known to devour a majority of fish, other helpless sea life and even humans (when they are in the position to attack them). But did you ever wonder if sharks attack whales?
Whales being one of the largest of sea mammals, are not easy to attack for the shark. Although not very often, they do try – and many times they succeed. So the answer is Yes – Sharks do attack and try to eat whales – if they are successful in their attack.
The only time sharks make a run for it is when they see a special kind of whale, known as the Killer Whale.The Killer Whale has its own defensive mechanism to deal with sharks, known as the “karate chop”. Moreover, they can swallow the shark as a whole!
