Well, we know that sperm whales are bad at parachuting. A pot of petunias is not an appropriate failsafe by any means. But although extreme sports may not be their forté, whales have exceptional talent when it comes to scavenger hunts.

“Right, guys, where are we going to find a blue sea urchin? I’ll take the Channel, you check out the Irish Sea. We’ll meet in the Mediterranean for the scuba goggles next.”
The sonar sure does come in handy.
