Tooth fossil discovered belonging to extinct sperm whale

A huge, five-million-year-old tooth belonging to a distant relative of the sperm whale, has been discovered on a beach at Beaumaris Bay, near Melbourne.

The 30cm (12 inch) tooth is now on display at Museum Victoria. The whale, which may have measured up to 18 metres long, similar in size to a modern-day male sperm whale, is thought to have preyed on other smaller whales.

Previously, the only recorded fossils of this whale had been found in the Americas.
