The odontocetes are more variable than the mysticetes. The sperm whales, members of the families Physteridae and Kogiidae (Table 1-6), share certain traits, including the presence of a spermaceti organ in the head, extreme skull asymmetry, and small underslung lower jaws; the sperm whale is much larger and has a much larger, squarer head than does Kogia; however, the Kogia skull is wider than it is long, unusual in mammals.
