1908 photo of Old Tom and a Davidson whaler. For over a century, orcas (killer whales) returned to Eden, NSW, Australia, to hunt with the Davidson family. The pod would "summon" the whalers by "tail-flopping" before leading the Davidson whalers to the hunt. When it was over, the orcas were left to claim their "share" and the whalers would later collect the remains. This arrangement was called “the law of the tongue”. The orcas also protected the whalers from sharks if they went overboard.

"You could hold the whole world in your hands if you cradled this ostrich egg. Its carved surface shows what is thought to be the oldest known depiction of the New World on a globe" — wow!
