Sperm whales Three sperm whales in Dominica. Shot under government permit. by KeriWilk
The Sperm Whale is the largest toothed predator. They are one of the three species in the Sperm Whale family, along with the Dwarf Sperm Whale and the Pygmy Sperm Whale. Adult Sperm Whales can reach up to 12m in length, with the head making up about a third of the body. The Sperm Whales blow is pointed forward and to the left, giving a distinctive spout.

Armed with seven-inch teeth and weighing more than 45 tonnes, sperm whales are one of the world’s most formidable predators. But far from being a Moby Dick-style man eater, they are friendly enough to swim within touching distance of humans. #SpermWhale #Whale #Dominica #Caribbean
