Shark or Orca? Filaprom in Ha with the Double Stack Quark - 14th february

This magnetically neutral line of plasma has been putting a great show on our star for nearly 2 weeks now, and, as it passes over the limb it continues to impress with it's dramatic views.  This image was taken with the double stacked Daystar Quark with the Skywatcher ED80 scope, 0.5x focal reducer and Imaging Source DMK31 camera.  What creature of the sea is it?  Shark or Orca?
