sperm whale 4 of 5 photos
Taken 70 miles east of Greenland 10.05.2007 GENERAL DESCRIPTION The sperm whale is a toothed whale that lives in pods. It has a huge brain that weighs about 20 pounds (9 kg); it is the largest brain of any animal. The sperm whale has a single blowhole that is s-shaped and about 20 inches long. The blowhole is located on the left side of the front if its huge head. The sperm whale has a 4-12 inch thick layer of blubber. Sperm whales produce ambergris, a dark, waxy substance (related to cholesterol) that is produced in the lower intestines, and is sometimes found containing squid beaks. Ambergris may help protect the sperm whale from the stings on the giant squid, its major food. Large lumps of ambergris may be vomited up by the sperm whale. The fictional Moby Dick was a sperm whale. Sperm Whale SIZE Sperm whales are the largest toothed whales. Adult males grow to be about 50-60 feet (17-20 m) long, weighing about 40-50 tons (36-45 tonnes). Females are smaller, about 33-40 feet (11-13 m) long, weighing about 14-18 tons. The four-chambered heart of the average sperm whale weighs about 277 pounds (126 kg) - about as much as two average adult human beings. SKIN, SHAPE AND FINS The skin is usually dark gray to black, but is occasionally light gray. It has a distinctive, prune-like texture. Sperm whales have the largest head of any animal. It can be about 20 feet long (6 m), 10 feet high (3 m), and 7 feet (2.1 m) across, and is about one-third of the whale's body length. The head has a distinctive box-like shape. The heads are frequently covered with circular scars that are made by the suckers of the giant squid that they hunt and eat. It has 5-foot (1.5 m) long flippers that are about 3 feet (0.9 m) wide. There is no dorsal fin but there is a small hump two-thirds of the way down its back. There are also some ridges between the hump and the tail flukes. THE NAME The sperm whale was named for the valuable spermaceti oil (wax) that this whale produces in the spermaceti organ (located in its head). DIET, HUNTING, AND TEETH Sperm whales are carnivores that mostly eat giant squid that live on the ocean bottom at great depths. They also eat fish , octopus, and skate. In 1998, off the coast of Indonesia, 3 sperm whales were observed attacking a rare, filter feeding megamouth shark. An adult Sperm Whale can eat about a ton of food each day. Sperm whale teeth are uniform. The teeth in the upper jaw never erupt. The teeth in the long, thin lower jaw are conical and huge, about 7 inches (18 cm) long. These teeth weigh about 2 pounds (900 g) each. The lower jaw is about 16 feet (5 m) long and has about 50-60 teeth in it. When the whale's mouth is closed, the teeth fit into sockets in the upper jaw. SOCIAL GROUPS The bonds between the members of sperm whale pods are strong and long-lasting. The members of a pod protect the young, the sick and the injured. Groups of females with their young are common. This group structure allows a mother to dive very deeply to hunt while leaving her young calf, who is unable to dive very deeply, at the surface and protected by the pod. DIVING Sperm whales are the deepest diving whales. Although they live at the surface they dive to hunt giant squid that are bottom dwellers. They have been known to dive as deeply as 10,500 feet (3,200 m), but average dives are about 4,000 feet (1,200 m) deep. The Sperm whale can hold its breath for about an hour. SPOUTING-BREATHING Whales breathe air at the surface of the water through a single, s-shaped blowhole. The blowhole is located on the left side of the front if its huge head. They spout (breathe) 3-5 times per minute at rest, but the rate increases to 6-7 times per minute after a dive. The blow is a noisy, single stream that rises up to 50 feet (15 m) above the surface of the water and points forward and to the left of the whale at a 45° angle. LOGGING LoggingLogging is when a whale lies still at the surface of the water, resting, with its tail hanging down. While floating motionless, part of the head, the dorsal fin or parts of the back are exposed at the surface. Sperm whales are often seen logging and are relatively easy to approach in this state. LOBTAILING Sperm whales also stick their tail out of the water into the air, swing it around, and then slap it on the water's surface; this is called lobtailing. It makes a very loud sound. The meaning or purpose of lobtailing is unknown, but may be done as a warning to the rest of the pod or as some other type of communication. VOCALIZATION Sperm whales use echolocation to catch their prey in the dark oceanic depths. Mothers also use it it keep track of their young calf when they are diving to hunt; a calf cannot dive very deeply because it has to breathe much more frequently than the mother does. HABITAT Sperm whales are found in many open oceans, both in tropical and cool waters. Sperm whales live at the surface of the ocean but dive very deeply to catch the giant squid. SPEED The smy daddy
So Rob and I have made the decision to be very open and honest about what has happened in the last little while in our family. He doesn't want any more secrets and wants to be held responsible for his actions. If you dont agree with our decision I would stop reading now. I guess it all started a couple years ago. Rob had a very bad infection and was in terrible pain. The ER treated him with antibiotics and percocet. About 3 minutes after he took the pills I saw a change in his face. He lit up like a Christmas tree, he said he felt amazing. Since that moment he has been battling an addiction ..... He would do really well for a couple months then fall back into it. Apparently its an expensive addiction and last month (or the month before?) he got a "text from a friend of a friend" who told him about something called "Black Tar". Its cheaper then pills, they will bring it to your house and the high is better. So Rob decided to try it. Again he was hooked right away. It took his whole life away in less then 2 months. He could no longer control the need for it or hide the withdraw symptoms from me. He was no longer Rob. He was .......idk who? A very scary, very mean, and very sick person. I had a nightmare on June 28th. In my dream I was sleeping in bed and woke up as Rob came into the room. I said "hi" to him and he didn't answer, he just walked up to me turned into this blurry vibrating spirit and started to try to kill me. I started screaming for Rob and he ran into the room. He tried to get this demon off me and save my life but he could not. He was powerless against himself. I woke up screaming and Penny licking my face. I told Rob about my nightmare and he said I must "know". I said "know what?". He told me what he was taking and how sick he was. He curled up on our bed with a bucket, sobbing and asked me to "leave him to rot in peace". I didn't know what to do..... I left the room.. I ended up texting my sister-in-law I was sorry I didn't have the money to pay back what I owed her bc it had been used on "other things". She asked me what and I didn't tell her. She finally got it out of me and with in 10 minutes my brother and sister showed up at my home, gathered me and my children in one car and took Rob to the hospital in another. (lots of other dramatic stuff happened during those hours too but there is no need to share that). Rob was transported from the hospital to a medical detox facility. From there he was supposed to go to a half way house but stayed at his moms till a bed opened up at a rehab center. He is now in the center for a 28 day rehab .....session??? ( Idk what its called). After that he will be evaluated and most likely stay another 28 days. After that he will probably be in a half way house till he is able to come home and deal with his life w/out needing *assistance*. Ive been told to not expect him home for at 6 months and for him to not be regular old Rob for at least a year or two.. or more. During that time we will hopefully get approved for long term disability. Till then I have no icome.. and he may not even be approved. Its all in Gods hands ... I am broken because I asked him daily what was wrong, why was he so sick? So angry?....... I finally got him to go to the ER a couple wks before the day the "shit hit the fan", bc I thought he may die. He wouldn't eat.. was so dehydrated.. was always vomiting. Even then he didn't tell me... even then he let me think he was dying. But what could it be? I asked if he was taking pills and he said no. So what? Mono?? (no fever) Cancer?? Or was he cheating on me and the guilt was making him sick (is that why he didn't love me any more)?? Did he have a dual personality??? For so long I cried myself to sleep every night. I would cry and pray for him having NO clue what was wrong. I still cant get over the lies, how he withheld the truth daily. I remember looking for $20 cash and freaking out that I had lost it. I didn't lose it. He took it. He let me look for it for hours and hours... He used all the money we were trying to save to fix our van on the drugs. He left me that day with nothing. No food, no car, all our bills past due.... I didn't even know what to tell our babies. He stole my best friend, my life, my love. I have to go to meetings before I am even allowed to see him again. Meetings so I learn to recognize his lies, so I never enable him again. I have to learn how to not trust my own husband. But the meetings will be good in another way. I dont think our family had healed from the death of Ella when Brent got sick and I dont think we had healed from that crisis before this one hit. I would like to heal. I would like to have peace, and to move forward. I need help to do so, and hope the meetings and the people there will have some good advice. I pray Rob comes along with me but if not I will forge ahead with my little angels and be the best d
