Beaked whale smashes diving record

Recommended Posts

Still Waters

Scientists studying the world's deepest diving mammal were left twiddling their thumbs when timing a dive off the coast of North Carolina.

The average dive for Cuvier's beaked whales usually lasts around one hour, at a depth of 1,400m, according to Duke University in the US.

But one of the mammals left scientists astonished after disappearing under water for three hours and 42 minutes, without coming up for air once.
