Spade Toothed Beaked Whale: first discovered in 1872 when bone fragments were found on a remote Pacific island, but until now the species has remained entirely hidden from human view. The Mother and her male calf were stranded on Opape Beach at the northern tip of New Zealand in December 2010 but were initially thought to be of a much more common species known as Gray's beaked whales. It was only after routine DNA analysis that experts realised their true identity. via #Whale
