Scientists film sperm whale ‘doing laps’ of underwater camera

A sperm whale surprised scientists carrying our research in the Gulf of Mexico on Tuesday.

The whale was filmed by the scientists’ robotic submarine, almost 600 meters below the surface.

Sperm whales are endangered and said to be curious and very intelligent.

This particular creature came so close that scars on its nose – possibly from a boat’s propellers – were visible.
