New research reveals there's more to being a sperm whale than eating giant squid and being as big as a city bus. According to a marine researcher at Dalhousie University in Halifax, these whales have their own dialects and cultures. PhD candidate Mauricio Cantor says humans share a lot in common with whales when it comes to communication. (Cantor says his research shows communication within large groups of sperm whales is the product of social learning not just instinct or genetics. He calls these segregated groups vocal clans.)
