Physeteridae

Sperm whales

The family Physeteridae includes the three living sperm whales including the pygmy sperm whale, dwarf sperm whale and the sperm whale. This family gets it name from early sailors of whaling boats who thought that the spermaceti, an oily secretion produced in the spermaceti organ in the whales head, was actual sperm from the reproductive system.
