The Latin name of the potato whale is Tuberosum macrocephalus. The majestic Potato Whale combines the enormous size and strength of the whale with the natural courage and tenacity of a potato. Often called 'ruler of the deep', the Potato Whale first appeared in Comic 178, as a silhouette. Its full form was then seen in Comic 179. We learn more about the Potato Whale in Comic 180, where we find out that the Sausage Squid is its mortal enemy.
