[Schoolchildren look at an ancient whale fossil exibited at the National History Museum in Lima on July 01, 2010. The giant whale named Leviathan melvillei in honour of Herman Melville and his novel “Moby Dick”, live about 12 million years ago in the Miocene period of Peru. The prehistoric sperm whale gripped large prey with its interlocking teeth, inflicting deep wounds and tearing large pieces from the body of its victims, the researchers said.
