Sperm Whales

This is a toothed whale as opposed to most all of the other whales that we know which use baleen to filter their catch of fish once swallowed. This whale was immortalized in the Herman Melville novel “Moby Dick”. Huge blocky heads and about 20 metres in length, they are easily identified by their low and bushy spout, which is projected forward and to the left. We see Sperm Whales many times during the summer into the fall.
