Watch: Sperm Whale Crashes into Fishing Boat
Reaching up to 20.5 metres, a sperm whale is not a creature you want running into your boat. This video shows the worrying moment when a pod of sperm whales off the coast of Lebu, Chile gradually head directly towards a team of Chilean fishermen sitting helplessly in the Pacific Ocean.
Initially it looks as though the fishermen are filming sperm whales in the distance without any worry, but as they edge closer, they begin to shout and whistle as if to tell the whales to watch where they are going.
Its not clear why the whales decided to collide with the boat, but it is clear that close encounter could have spelt disaster for the Chilean fishermen. As the whales travel past, the fishing boat rocks precariously and the men burst into laughter.
