One man in New Zealand heard a rumor that there were orcas swimming just down the beach, so he immediately sprang to action. Grabbing his paddleboard and his camera, he went 200 meters offshore to find the elusive animals. There was only one slight problem: Orcas are nicknamed killer whales for a reason. Okay, okay: They didn’t exactly choose to have the paddleboarder for lunch. However, one of them *did* go in for a little nibble — though it seemed to be more about curiosity than anything else. You can watch their amazing (and slightly tense) interaction below. Would you get this close to one of the ocean’s most renowned meateaters?
