Cheers Chris, those images

Cheers Chris, those images are very similar. I dont think there is much else it can be.

I didnt actually get to see

I didnt actually get to see this whale even though it was right on my doorstep. I was working elsewhere at the time. I should have added that the man who took the jawbones from the whale was quite certain it was a sperm whale. He was in little doubt. Pity all the teeth were gone.
