reported that a captive orca (killer whale) has learned to lure seagulls to its pool so it can eat them! The way the orca does it is gross but effective: it regurgitates fish onto the surface of the water, then lies in wait to snap up the hungry birds. Not only did the one whale figure this out, now five whales in the park have learned how to get a snack this way.

Even animals pick up on their friends’ habits.
