Kienle et al. suggest amendments to our framework for feeding in predatory
aquatic mammals. Below we reply to their suggestions and demonstrate that
they are fundamentally flawed from both a mechanical (feeding cycle, strategies)
and an evolutionary perspective. They do, however, inspire an
important addition to the range and structuring of capture behaviours encoded
in our framework.
