Sleeping Whales

This is a photo of sperm whales sleeping.
Until people found this pod of resting whales, it was thought that these carnivorous whales didn't sleep, that they only rested one side of their brain at a time, with one eye open!

 The link above has a video. 
I love this image and the idea of these huge creatures drifting quietly as they sleep.

TThis is how sperm whales sleep. Yes, really.
