Are there any whales that eat squid?

    Yes.  Squid are the typical diet of the sperm whale.  Last year, a rare underwater photo was taken of adult sperm whales teaching calves to hunt for squid.  Sperm whales also eat rays, skates, and octupi.

    Yes. Sperm Whales eat squid, including giant squid. They have to dive very deep in order to find them, sometimes reaching 3280 feet below the surface. The whales can hold their breath for 90 minutes in order to do so. Here is a rare picture of a sperm whale eating a giant squid.
