Hi Roger

The movements of the Pygmy Sperm Whale are not well known since they are
rarely seen. What we think we know comes from strandings. They don't
seem to migrate at all around South Africa. They seem to inhabit nearly
all subtropical, tropical and temperate waters of the world. Strandings
are common along the North American east and west coasts as far north as
Nova Scotia and south as far as Texas, New Zealand, Australia, Peru and
