Whales are honestly the scariest most terrifying creature I can think of.
Imagine this endless blue abyss. Just miles and miles of empty water in every direction, a total featureless deep abyss.
And then out of the distance emerges this huge abomination, a gigantic monstrosity a hundred metres long with these huge fins. Slowly edging towards you in the water while letting out these deep low pitch screams at you.
The mere idea of it freaks me out.
I am scared of plesiosaurus
Whales are the most majestic dynasty of mammals.
Baleen whales are some of the most gentle and peaceful animals, they are aware of us and will not try to hurt, scare or "eat" an human being.
How easily do you think a white woman would get gulped down by a blue whale?
if it smells like fish it's an edible dish
What's interesting is that most of the big whales evolved to flee from threats. Only sperm whales and humpbacks fight back, the latter doing so by slapping shit like large sharks and orcas with their flippers. Even the blue whale is designed for speed rather than combat, and it gets preyed on by orcas occasionally.
I had a few nightmares about Kyogre.
Who told you blue whales were hundred metres long?
Parasites are infinitely more scary and terrifying than a swimming school bus
>Just miles and miles of empty water in every direction, a total featureless deep abyss.
If this freaks you out, never look outside our atmosphere. You have absolutely no idea of the cosmic emptiness we're falling through.
I don't fear whales as a concept, but swimming close to them would admittedly make me very uncomfortable. Animals that big in a medium as alien as open waters always leave an impression for better or worse.
I very much not like that the rumbling of certain whales is so high decibrl can kill you up close, though. Doesn't feel fair. I also have a hard time thinking orcas and sperm whales wouldn't actively eat people if they could. Like, you alone floating in the water, no big ship, no boat, no crowd, how could a killer fucking whale come across that and not consider eating you? Just because you aren't a seal? I don't trust toothed whales
Unironically yes, even taking our relative lack of fat out of the question (we’re practically just bone and skin to sea predators) Orcas in particular are very picky eaters. Certain pods will only eat certain prey, even if other available prey is nearby. Obviously not all are like that, but they exist. As for why they don’t fuck with people when they commit marine hate crimes every single day just for keks, who knows. They’re highly intelligent and actively pass knowledge down to their young, and lord knows we’ve been nothing but absolutely destructive to the oceans.
Would they eat a morbidly obese person? Like someone 400+ lbs?
only one way to find out
Even a morbidly obese person would be anorexic tier compared to a small seal, let alone a lot of the other creatures in the sea. The interesting thing with orcas though is that they’re total sociopaths to everything else, they’ll actively torment something that may be a part of their chosen diet for fun without even eating it. All except for people, aside from what certain native american tales used to speak of centuries ago. Keep in mind they love messing with stingrays and punting seals in the air with their tails. Yet on the flip side there’s been records of them helping people out, nevermind the fact that they’ll also completely ignore you.
Definitely possible. They’re pretty smart and you don’t even need a single gun to cause a lot of damage and death in the oceans. I mean imagine being an orca and all of a sudden you start seeing these big metal contraptions with all these nets and hooks and shit on the sides spearing down the depths below taking out all sorts of prey like its nothing. That must be like some War of The Worlds kind of shit to them. And god help any of them that happen to go near the Chinese.
Maybe they have realized that humans can wipe them out and don't want to fuck with them.
why are cityfags like this
Sure Bubba I bet you take grandpappy's 22 out every weekend to go whale hunting
>His grandad isn't ahab.
It's interesting because they are not as terrifying as they should be
Why do they always have so many Josh Wheaton sounding assholes on these streams?
What you looking at wee human
whales are friends
Is it only me or is moby dick based off a livyatan
It's just you
Livyatan was found like 150 years after moby dick was written
>muh heckin thalassophobia
Fuck off, I literally used to have nightmares about the ocean as a kid
You've never experienced true thalassophobia up until you've dropped and seen the oceanic abyss with your own eyes.
I found it pretty fascinating. Couldn't stop staring.
Watch avatar the way of water
I’d rather watch The Whale
I'll watch if u confirm the humans beat the blue chuds this time.
it's just an oversized rat that eats krill
