Sperm Whale

Sperm Whales are the largest toothed whale in the world and they are a sight to see! One of the most interesting things about them is how they rest as they seem to hang perpendicular to the surface, sometimes in very large groups, with only their blowhole above the water so that to someone watching from above they appear much smaller than they actually are. They have the largest brain on earth which can weigh about 17 pounds in an adult
