Sperm Whales Love Chilling With the Boys

Believed to Be Solitary, Male Sperm Whales Actually Hang With the Boys – In Friendships That Can Last Years

While female sperm whales almost always live together in pods.  But male Sperm whales are known to spend most of their time hunting in  the bottom of the ocean, because of this, they are not easy to study.  But a Japanese biologist has recently discovered that male sperm whales form strong friendships with other males.  These bonds can even last for life. A pair of whales was recorded spending hours of time together hanging out over the course of a week.  Whales can form friendships just like humans, this could mean that whales are smarter than we realized.

 

I think that whale friendships are incredible.  The fact that male sperm whales spend so much time together just chilling astounds me.  I never could have thought that whales of all species form relationships that last for so long.  We thought male sperm whales were a mostly solitary species, but I guess we were wrong about that.  I can’t wait to see what this means for the animal kingdom now.
