Thread Name: ADD: Killers of Eden - Killer Whale Song (Otway)
Subject: RE: Killers of Eden - Killer Whale Song
An amazing story. All true apparently. The killer whales (a type of dolphin) rounded up the humpbacks for the whalers and drove them into Twofold Bay to be slaughtered, for which as payment they recieved the tongues of the dead whales.

The killer whales saved many whalers from drowning and from being attacked by sharks during the time of their association, which was apparently started with the Aborigines long before the white man came along.
