Franco Banfi caught amazing marine animals at a depth of about 65 feet off the coast of Dominica in the Caribbean Sea.
Sperm whales, known as social animals, usually sleep vertically for 6 to 25 minutes.
This behavior was first documented in 2008, and after further research, it was found that they sleep at short intervals for 7 percent of their lives.
It was a group of around ten sperm whales all sleeping together. He did not know why they sleep vertically, maybe because they could use the sonar they have in their head to sense any danger approaching. Mr Ben was very lucky to see such a great moment in nature, and we are thankful to him for taking photos for us.
