Whale Facts
« on: July 09, 2014, 05:14:17 AM »
Teased a little bit in the shoutbox, here's what I assembled from a few whale wikipedia pages:

  • The sperm whale is the largest of the toothed whales and the largest toothed predator.
  • The sperm whale's clicking vocalization may be as loud as 230 decibels, making it the loudest sound produced by any animal.
  • The sperm whale has the largest brain of any animal on Earth, more than five times heavier than a human's.
  • Sperm whales can live for more than 60 years.
  • The sperm whale was named as such after a semi-liquid waxy substance found within the whale's head called spermaceti. This was originally thought to be the whale's semen.
  • The blue whale is the largest existing animal and the heaviest that ever existed.
  • Blue whales are known to reach speeds of 50 kph over short bursts - roughly equivalent to the maximum speed of the Dire Whale!
  • Male humpback whales produce a complex song lasting 10 to 20 minutes, which they repeat for hours at a time.

Sperm whales are fucking fascinating

Don't get between a GMan and his spermaceti or it'll be the last thing you do!
