STUPENDOUS SPERM WHALE FACTS!

• There isn’t a calamari-lover on earth who could rival a sperm whale’s gusto for squid. Females gobble up 700-800 of ‘em every single day while males generally put away a more modest 300-400. Stomach contents reveal that even giant squids don't escape this particular love of the sperm whale.

• Herman Melville’s Moby-Dick was based on a true story about an enraged Sperm Whale. This stranger-than-fiction incident unfolded in the South Pacific on November 20, 1820, when a gigantic male slammed into a New England whaling vessel called The Essex.

• If you see a beached sperm whale corpse, you might wanna consider stepping back. Decaying cadavers have, on numerous occasions, violently erupted in front of stunned human audiences.
