    are the gratuitous or wasteful ones. Like the orcas that use baby seals as playthings before killing them.

    Predation is hard to witness.

    Even grazing can be, like slugs. Or cutworms, which eat just around the base off a veggie stem, killing it and then move on to the next, leaving the rest of the plant to waste.

    Just as another viewpoint on all these aquatic-on-terrestrial horror stories, if you saw these animals in the water, where they live, you'd be surprised how un-scary they are. Even sharks. Unless you are on the surface, or chumming the water, most sharks will be afraid of YOU, and swim away. There aren't that many species that are actively aggressive underwater.

      Toe Biters...i'm just sayin..nothing clears out a forest pool of a bunch of dfh's than showing the dozen or three toe biters hanging around the edges.

      that's what the cookie cutter shark does, these little socialists just take what need...as different than the cowardly gw sharks that attack from under and behind and chomp and let the poor little seal bleed to death...well, at least they aren't playing with them...or are they (cue video of leaping gw sharks near the Farralons..)

      and then there's the insect world for beauty and community values :>
