Sperm Whale | NOAA Fisheries
It is the only living member of genus Physeter and one of three extant species in the sperm whale family , along with the pygmy sperm whale and dwarf sperm whale of the genus Kogia. The sperm whale is a pelagic mammal with a worldwide range, and will migrate seasonally for feeding and breeding. The females cooperate to protect and nurse their young. Females give birth every four to twenty years, and care for the calves for more than a decade. A mature sperm whale has few natural predators, although calves and weakened adults are sometimes killed by pods of orcas killer whales. Sperm whales can live for more than 60 years.

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.

They have stumpy dorsal fins and two relatively small pectoral fins on either side of their wrinkle-covered bodies. Perhaps their most recognizable trait though is their jaw, containing up to 52 cone-shaped teeth in the lower half, weighing a kilo each!
The sperm whale — Physeter macrocephalus — is an oddball among living cetaceans. As big as many of its baleen-bearing cousins, yet armed with a lower jaw full of teeth slung below its blunt head, the sperm whale is the largest predaceous vertebrate in the sea. It might have been cast as a gentle giant by various save-the-whales organisations but, while it is certainly worthy of protection, it was whalers of centuries past who knew full well the power of this marine mammal. Their impressions of the cachalot were immortalised in literature by Herman Melville's Moby Dick. Less an animal than a force of nature, Melville's antagonist was the "monomaniac incarnation of all those malicious agencies which some deep men feel eating in them".
