Well, it's an interesting video.
Sperm whale with upper teeth, interesting, indeed...
Ride 'em cowboy
I still find it somewhat farfetched that an Architeuthis tentacle club could withstand the pressure of a mature sperm whale exhaling; it doesn't compute.
Does photo at end of video show. . .
the carcass of an actual Sperm Whale, which they think was killled by a squid??? Translantion anyone?
The carcass must be the one they put on display, opposite the "lifelike" reconstruction. I guess this is an "educational" video especially made for the display?
It´s also strange the Architeuthis is encountered by the whale in a coral reef (!), or that its eyes blink. It is also next to impossible that a squid could strangulate a sperm whale. As we all know diving whales have already nearly no more air in their lungs, they are already compressed. Furthermore the body of the sperm whale is highly adapted to withstand high underwater pressures, and it is also covered by a thick layer of blubber, which would protect blood vessels from constrictions. Not to mention that even small sperm whales are around 30 times heavier than large giant squids...
