    The only piece of solid information we have, is that a Killer Whale was caught on tape killing a Great White, the whale was a 20ft female and the shark was a 10 footer.

    I believe an Orca could easily defeat a Great White, due to superior intelligence and larger size.

    1v1 IMO the orca wins every time, but the danger here is if one of them gets nicked, blood flows and more sharks are after the harmed party.

    Orca, definately. Those things are huge compaired to sharks, a great white wouldn't stand a chance.

    Dolphins can kill sharks. They run at a high speeds and ram into them thus sufficating them under water. Isn't that a trip?

    Yeah dolphins are vicious little animals, your chances of getting killed by a dolphin are only slightly less than that of a shark.

    More interesting question : Tiger or Lion?

    Tiger or Lion, fully grown, healthy and powerful. Just 1:1 and one will eat the other because they are so hungry. Who'd win?

    PS) One of my friends used to be a sailor. He said a shark cannot stand against an Orca or a dolphin (actually they are so smart he said).

    A siberian tiger would win. A full grown male siberian tiger is much bigger than a full grown male african lion.

    Orcas are vicious animals. Inside of orcas they found contents of all sorts of creatuers including a part from a polar bear! I wonder how that happened.

    Isn't there a discovery channel show for these battles? They create robotic arms/jaws to simulate the power in each then create a computer simulation to simulate the battle.

    A liger would whoop up on either animals, since they do not possess that growth inhibiting hormone that stops tigers and lions from growing.

    They've captured them on film coming through the ice to grab a polar bear. Also gather that the bears go after seals (this happens to sharks as well) and the Orca has been in the same place at the wrong time for seal, shark and bear.
