This Is So Cool — Orcas Exfoliating on the Beach!

While Chris Wilton and his friends were walking up the west coast of Canada, they came across an incredible pod of orcas demonstrating some very interesting behavior — it’s called “beach rubbing.”

Many orcas off Canada’s coast rub their bodies against the area’s signature beach pebbles. The scientific consensus is that this activity is a sort of traditional ritual for orcas, though it probably feels pretty good too.

Check out the video to see these gorgeous creatures skimming their bodies across the shallow, pebbly beach.
