Sperm Whale




Hello world, how are you?
Today is Tuesday so that means it is creature day, today's creature is somewhat bigger then last weeks.

Today we have the Sperm Whale which at 18m or 59ft is somewhat bigger then the Kangaroo Rat. They also of course have bloody big teeth around 20cm's or 8in long and they can weigh as much as a kilo or 2.21lb each which are housed in it's bloody huge head along with the biggest brain of any creature.

This whale can hold its breath for up to 90 minutes and can dive more than 3200 metres or 10,500, ft, wow, males are 3x heavier then females.

Back in 1820 when hunting whales was com/mon a whaling ship the Essex was rammed by a sperm whale in the Pacific Ocean. The ship sank and the crew drifting in small boats resorted to eating each other, only 8 of the 21 on board survived.

They love to eat squid, octopus and cuttlefish including the giant squid.

Sperm Whales can recognise each others voice and have a lifespan of 60-70 yrs when they die they have a tendency to explode.

I never heard about the crew who ate each other to survive! Wow! Sounds like the Donnor Party over here who got stuck crossing the mountains in winter. Creepy!
