Pygmy Right Whale Description
  The Pygmy Right Whale is more streamlined than its other family members, the Right Whales and Bowhead Whale. It more closely resembles the rorquals (such as the Blue and Minke Whales) due to its narrow rounded flippers and the presence of a dorsal fin. However, they do resemble the Right and Bowhead Whales as well with the highly-arched jawline which becomes more pronounced with age.
