Familty of sperm whales

A familiar pod of sperm whales.

Sperm whales are toothed whales which means that they're scientifically closer to dolphins, unlike other whales in which the females are normally larger than males, like dolphins the male is larger than the females, a male sperm whale measures around 16 meters (52 feet), females reach normally 8 meters (26 feet). The name "sperm whale" comes from the liquid inside its head called spermaceti, which was first mistaken for the animal's semen. They can plunge up to 2,250 meters (7,382 feet), being the second deepest diving mammal behind Cuvier's beaked whale, they can be in apnea up to 2 hours, they normally swim this deep for giant squids, which they hunt with their small teeth present only in the lower jaw, despite that squids can also be dangerous to sperm whales. Unusual among cetaceans, the sperm whale's blowhole is highly skewed to the left of the head.
