Pictures from photo gallery: "Whale Pictures"

The waters of the Pacific Ocean along the Kaikoura coast in the South Island of New Zealand, play host to many sea animals including the sperm whale, the largest living toothed animal in the world. The sperm whale is a marine mammal.

Kaikoura in New Zealand is a popular location for watching sperm whales as they are relatively close to the coastline due to a canyon which hosts a multitude of marine life including the sperm whale and its favourite prey - giant squid.
