Jellyfish, Mallorca's unwanted TouristsMallorca was host to a special guest recently when a 200.000 kg decided to swim with one of the locals just fo the coast of Port Soller.
An unusual but welcome sight from the usual jelly fish that tend to infest the waters of the Balearics this time of year.
The whale was identified as a male Sperm whale which can grow up to 20.5 meters (67 ft), in length, it is the second deepest diving mammal, followed by the Cuvier’s beaked whale.
This type of whale is a pelagic mammal that has worldwide range, and will migrate seasonally for feeding and breeding,
Another fun fact is that the Sperm whale has the largest brain on Earth, more than five times heavier than a human’s.
