Subject: Marine mammal links and informations

Your question was:

I've been told by experts is whale watching two deeply opposite 
things: 1st: false killer whales are very dangerous, perhaps the most 
dangerous mammal among all dolphins and whales species. 2nd: false 
killer whales are the most sociable whle (or dolphin).        Which 
of these two informations is correct?

My answer is:

Dear Fernando,

Thanks for your question regarding killer whales.  Unfortunately, my 
speciality is manatees, so I don't know the answer to your question.  
Perhaps you might try one of the experts at WhaleNet
