My coauthors and I are pleased to announce our new publication:
Whitt, A.D., M.A. Baran, M. Bryson, and L.E. Rendell. 2015. First report of
killer whales harassing sperm whales in the Gulf of Mexico. Aquatic Mammals
41(3): 252-255. DOI: http://dx.doi.org/10.1578/AM.41.3.2015.252
In this short note, we describe an interesting and prolonged interaction
between five killer whales and 19 sperm whales in the Gulf of Mexico. This
encounter provides a rare insight into the lives of the cryptic Gulf of
Mexico killer whales and their potential predation on the sperm whale
population in the northern Gulf.
