New Whale Species
This undated illustration provided by National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration Southwest Fisheries Science Center shows a species of beaked whale. Genetic tests have confirmed that a mysterious, unnamed species of whale roams the northern Pacific Ocean, according to research published this week in a national journal. Beaked whales spend up to 90 minutes underwater hunting for squid in deep water. They may spend only a few minutes at the surface, rarely breach, travel in small numbers and blend into their surroundings. (Uko Gorter/Natural History Illustration/NOAA via AP)
