Whale steals fish – Updated

sperm whale by roctopus

This report on
sperm whales and their feeding habits is pretty wild. They carefully pluck long fishing lines from our ships in order to release attached fish, that they then eat. No one had ever filmed a sperm whale eating. Now we have evidence of them being very clever in their eating techniques and taking advantage of us.

Smart whales.

UPDATED – here is a much greater discussion of sperm whales with some focus on echo location.
