does beg the question, who would win in a fight between a sperm whale and a giant squid?

i guess the squid as it is a predator rather than a giant sieve

Well the sperm whale is on there because sperm whales eat giant squid

Sperm whale is a whale with teeth not a sieve whale.

Baleen. That's what many whales have to strain the sea.

The old London bus measurement strikes again.

This is all down to those 1950s Ladybird childrens books and the natural history museum measuring dinosaurs in buses and men. "Three men high and one bus long!"

That was a textbook example though, always nice to see.
