What Sperm Whales Can Teach Us About Humanity

Sperm whales are only at the surface for about 15 or 20 minutes at a time, yet photographer Brian Skerry is able to capture beautiful moments of these giant undersea predators. He experienced the rare opportunity to photograph a social gathering of six sperm whales near the eastern Caribbean island of Dominica. He witnessed fascinating behaviour such as whales playfully biting each other, rolling around, and babysitting. This assignment made Skerry realise that sperm whales are complex animals that have identity and personality, and exhibit traits similar to human beings.
