You want orcas? We got your orcas!

These Free Willy impersonators are on the prowl for some fatty snacks on the coast of Peninsula Valdes, Argentina. The sea lion is keeping a close eye on them.

I am not sure they showed this in the movie (no, we didn’t actually see the move and don’t have any plans to), but they will swim towards the beach and lunge onto the sand and grab a pokey sea lion for lunch if they can.

Unfortunately, fortunately perhaps, we didn’t see this spectacle of nature.  Score one for the sea lions.

However, Giselle did have a close encounter with another ruthless predator; the much-feared picnic-crashing armadillo.
