The sperm whale (Physeter macrocephalus), or cachalot, is the largest of the toothed whales and the largest toothed predator. It is the only living member of 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. Mature male sperm whales average 16 metres in length but some may reach 20.5 metres, with the head representing up to one-third of the animal's length. Plunging to 2,250 metres, it is the second deepest diving mammal, following only the Cuvier's beaked whale. Order: Artiodactyla, Infraorder: Cetacea, Family: Physeteridae, Subfamily: Physeterinae, Genus: Physeter, Species: Physeter macrocephalus Linnaeus, 1758.
