Poster with old illustration of a sperm whale. The picture is from 1872 and was designed by Charles Melville Scammon. In the picture we see, among other things, the text Sperm Whale (Physeter macrocephalus) - English and Latin for the species. 

The sperm whale's fin can strike at a speed of three meters a second, which is fast enough to break the back of a killer whale. In the head, the sperm whale has a large organ which is filled with an oil-likesubstance. In the old days, whale hunters believed that the substance was whale's semen, which we know today is not the case. The function of the substance is unknown but due to the misunderstanding the whale is still called "sperm whale". The fictional whale Moby Dick was a white sperm whale.

Artist: Charles Melville Scammon | Created: 1872.
