  5. 5. The sperm whale<br />The sperm is a whale that has an enormous boxlike head. Sperm whales easily dive over a mile beneath the surface of the sea to catch the giant fast-moving squids they prey on. The squids may hide or flee but the whale just whale just sucks them in.<br />
  6. 6. Blue whale<br />The blue is the biggest mammal on earth. It is as long as three buses and as heavy as 25 elephants. Everything about the blue whale is huge. The heart is the size of an automobile. A person could walk through the biggest arteries. Fifty people could stand the tongue. And it eats four tons of food every day. Here is a short video of a blue whale feeding on krill. Blue whales also eat tiny creatures and plants called plankton.<br />
