Sperm whale brain
Call me Ishmael for making conjectures unflattering to humankind, but could Moby Dick have been smarter than captain Ahab? Melville certainly seemed to think so. Moby clipped off one of the captain's legs and then, years later, in a brilliant move of cetacean jujitsu, drowned poor Ahab by towing him into the abyss by the harpoon rope tangled around Ahab's remaining leg. We humans pride ourselves on our big brains. We never seem to tire of bragging about how our supreme intelligence empowers us to lord over all other animals on the planet.

Whales intrigue people. Killer whales draw crowds to marine parks. They are often featured in nature films that extol their intelligence, sound repertoire, and hunting skills. Large sperm whales are champion divers in ocean depths. Due to depictions such as in Melville's Moby Dick , sperm whales are regarded as large, fearsome, powerful, and intelligent creatures. These two toothed whale species have the widest distribution in the world's ocean.

Are Whales Smarter Than We Are?
The sperm whale or cachalot [a] Physeter macrocephalus is the largest of the toothed whales and the largest toothed predator. It is the only living member of the genus Physeter and one of three extant species in the sperm whale family , along with the pygmy sperm whale and dwarf sperm whale of the genus Kogia. The sperm whale is a pelagic mammal with a worldwide range, and will migrate seasonally for feeding and breeding.

Cetacean dolphin, whale and porpoise brains are among the least studied mammalian brains because of the difficulty of collecting and histologically preparing such relatively rare and large specimens. Among cetaceans, there exist relatively few studies of the brain of the dwarf sperm whale Kogia simus.
