"The great predatory cycle of life so evident in Antarctica seas sometimes produces spectacular actions such as this where the carnivorous mammals turn as a pack and devour their own kind like this plankton-eating baleen whale. The latter, though usually much larger than the killers, is defenseless against them and, after numerous frantic leaps, tires and submits to being torn apart."--Commander Standish Backus.
