This CNN article evidently there are lots of sperm whales that hang out in the mississippi cavern, rig off the delta, right where the oil leak is...


Well get ready to see beached whales....


Sperm whales were hunted in the Gulf of Mexico in the 18th and 19th centuries for their oil, but were somewhat spared when petroleum replaced whale oil as an energy source. Now, instead of hunters, the same oil that helped to save the sperm whales from extinction threatens their survival in the Gulf.
