Sperm Whale, Physeter macrocephalus, Valparaiso, Chile

Raising his tail before a deep dive, a male Sperm Whale, Physeter macrocephalus disappears beneath the surface to hunt for squid in the cold waters of the Humboldt Current in the Pacific off the coast of Valparaíso, Chile.

Largest of toothed cetaceans, Sperm Whale was heavily hunted in the past for the precious ambergris, and was immortalized in literature by Hermann Melville in his timeless novel, Moby Dick.
