CRAP !!
Sperm whales can dive as deep as 2,250 meters (7,382 ft) into the water,
and their bodies have unique physiological adaptations to allow them to
survive the intense cold and crushing pressure of these dives. They can
limit circulation to the brain and other organs, slow the heart to 10 beats
per minute to conserve oxygen, and collapse the lungs and rib cage to
withstand pressure.
The Sperm whale is second only to the Cuvier's beaked whale, reported to
dive as deep as 2,992
meters (9,816 feet).
