This doesn’t exactly qualify as news, but it is fascinating none the lesser. The Guardian recently ran a fantastic piece on an orca whale discovered in the 1860’s that, upon dissection, was revealed to have quite the appetite. The piece goes into the gastronomic details at length, but let it be said that the whale was found to contain the remains of just over two dozen seals and porpoises. It even made its way into pop culture at the time, being featured in Jules Verne’s 20,000 leagues under the sea.
