(Sharks have a thing where they are paralyzed when they are upside-down I guess) Then they rip it apart and eat its huge, fatty liver.
The pod of orcas you are referring to is in False Bay. That is a bay near Cape Town South Africa formed on the west by the Cape of Good Hope.
Incidentally, it is where I am at right now
There's a small island in the bay called Seal Island.
The great whites love eating them and most of the jumping great whites you may have seen videos of were filmed here.
Last year some great whites washed up on beaches on the eastern shores of the huge bay and it is attributed to the orcas.

No, I haven't been swimming in the bay LOL

Neat! My brother visited there, actually. Went kayaking. He said the seals are actually pretty friendly, and one popped out of the water and put his head on his lap. Absolutely scared the life out of him, since they had spotted fins in the water that afternoon.
