The sperm whale is considered by most to be the seventh-largest mammal on the planet, so when one of them has to take a dump, you would have to think it would be quite the spectacle — albeit a disgusting one.
According to UPI, a Canadian photographer recently had to live through just that while he was swimming with several sperm whales off the coast of Dominica, and luckily for all of us, he let the camera roll.
Man Swimming With Whales Photographs Massive Poop
Keri Wilk said he and his crew found themselves at “ground zero of the most epic bowel movement” he had ever seen, and by the looks of things, we’d say that is probably the best way to sum it up.
Wilk referred to the incident as a “poop-splosion” that measured over 100 feet in diameter because the whale was spinning around them. Once the whale was finished with his massive “poop ball,” Wilk said it swam away from them faster than he had ever seen a whale move.
