     Hi Elysse,
     
     Sorry to take so long to answer your question, I was enjoying 
     Christmas with my family.  There is unpublished data that suggests 
     that sperm whales may live for 65-70 years.  It might make you feel a 
     little better to know that there is a world-wide agreement 
     (moratorium) to not kill sperm whales, since they are so endangered.  
     Thanks for your question and thanks for caring about sperm whales!
     
     Sincerely,
     Dagmar

My name is Elyse and I was wanting to know if you knew about how long a sperm 
whale can live. I understand that if people would stop killing them off they 
would live quite a long time. But about how long? Thank you for reading this.
