Deep Sea Animals

Sperm Whales are well known deep sea animals

Deep Sea Animals - Physeter Macrocephalus, Kaikoura, New Zealand coast.

The most illustrated and well known whale is a sperm whale, although they are in fact deep sea animals. It is thought that the Spermaceti oil contained in the sperm whales head is an aid for these animals as they dive to astonishing depths of up to 10,500 feet or 3200 metres into the deep sea.

This deep sea animal feasts on the giant squid and other bottom dwelling fish or sharks.
