Baird's Beaked Whale Description
  Baird's Beaked Whale is the largest member of the beaked whales, with a long beak and bulging forehead. The lower jaw extends further than the upper, revealing the one of the two pairs of teeth even when the mouth is closed. These long-bodied animals have small flippers and a small blunt dorsal, and are slate grey in colour, which can look like brown or black at sea. The undersides are blotched with white. Adults are normally scarred from the teeth of their companions, cookie-cutter sharks and orcas.
