Here is some information about the Sperm Whale:
Sperm whales are totally unique. Colossal giants of the deep, their presence commands a reverent awe.
They possess the largest brain in the animal kingdom and spend much of their lives in the light-starved depths of the oceans hunting prey. The mighty sperm whales look nothing like any other whale. For a start, they each have an enormous square-shaped head which accounts for around a third of their body length.
Sperm whales can dive to depths of up to 3km and hold their breath for an incredible 2 hours. Immense diving prowess aside, the social structures of sperm whales are not totally unlike that of humans. Young male sperm whales often hang out in groups, until they are around 30 years when they tend to go their separate ways. Females on the other hand like to spend more time together and join in ‘nursery schools’ to look after young.
