    Overall, this was the worst one. The colossal squid is the natural prey of sperm whales. The outcome was virtually guaranteed. It's like having an animal face-off between an orca and a harbor seal.
  • The clash of the titans - the super-sized sperm whale vs. the slimy giant squid. Will the Leviathan triumph, or will the kraken drown it in its tentacled embrace?

    6.4
    Essentially the saltwater crocodile vs. the white shark conflict, cranked-up a notch. The main difference, though, is that the squid is the one with the homebase advantage, while the whale is the amphibious one. However, while the shark and the croc were essentially in the same-weight category (and almost succeeded at killing each other at one point), the whale is much more massive than the squid, and it got much tougher natural armor than the squid, as well as the bigger mouth: the squid just gave it some scars, while the whale swallowed the squid whole. Overall, the polar bear vs. the walrus had been a more exciting fight.moreless
