The Sperm Whale is the largest predatory animal living on Earth today, reaching nearly 70 feet in length. It hunts in the deep ocean, and its prey often includes the second largest living predator – the Colossal Squid. Sperm Whales are known for their large heads, which contain oil called spermaceti. It is this substance, once commonly used in lamps and candles, that gives the whale its common name.
