    NZ scientists in world first discovery of the elusive spade-toothed beaked whale

    First to human eyes: the 17-foot whale mother and her calf beached in New Zealand in 2010

    New Zealand scientists have made a world first discovery when they identified two skeletons belonging to the spade-toothed beaked whale, which is so rare that nobody has seen one alive. A 17-foot whale mother and her calf beached themselves in New Zealand in 2010 and were buried misidentified for a much more common type of whale that occasionally strands on NZ beaches.
