Sperm Whale

A Sperm Whale measures around 15-18 metres and weighs in at 35-45 tons.  When it dives, it displays its massive fluke, about 5 metres from tip to tip.  This one kindly displayed for us in the ocean off Svalbard.  The Sperm is easily recognisable by its sideways blow, shown in the image below.
