Did you know?

What a record breaker!!

The Sperm whale is not only the largest of toothed whale, reaching an incredible 20 meters, but it also has the largest brain of ANY living animal!

Diving up to 3,000 meters in search of its favorite prey the Giant or Colossal Squid, the Sperm whale uses Echolocation to hunt. This whale's 'clicking' sounds, done by blowing our air, are the loudest vocalization of any specie.

The name 'Sperm whale' is derived from 'Spermaceti', the milky-waxy substance found in this whale's head. History saw the Sperm whale hunted for its 'spermaceti', and today this whale is listed as "Vulnerable" by the IUCN.
