The superlative whale, the sperm or cachalot is the largest of the toothed whales and the largest toothed predator. The sperm whale is a pelagic mammal with a worldwide range and will migrate seasonally for feeding and breeding. Females and young males live together in groups, while mature males (bulls) live solitary lives outside of the mating season. The females cooperate to protect and nurse their young. Females give birth every four to 20 years and care for the calves for more than a decade.

This Sperm whale model could be rested as it is on a surface or hanged onto a wall using the pre-drilled holes on its side. The model is a three-dimensional figure that has a flat side for ease when hanging. Each piece is unique and slightly different from any other made by the same process.
