A rare and precious scene was filmed a few years ago. A team of amateur divers, with a passion for marine life and large marine mammals were lucky enough to observe an event which is rarely described in scientific circles: a group of sleeping sperm whales.
Have you ever wondered how the marine mammals that inhabit our ocean sleep? They have to rise regularly to the surface to be able to breathe, whilst at the same time being wary of predators and possible dangers. So how can they find peace?
The sleep of a giant
Thanks to a team of amateur divers, the mystery has been partly lifted. In 2013, a group of divers with a passion for marine mammals managed to capture a marvellous natural phenomenon both on photo and on video.
They witnessed a sleeping group of large sperm whales, great marine mammals that can exceed 20 metres in length and can weigh up to 57 tonnes! We leave you to watch our video and discover this truly breathtaking scene, which makes us want to stay humble in the face of nature’s miracles.
