Spade Toothed Whale Description
  Nothing is known of the external appearance of this species of beaked whale, except that adult males have a large tusk erupting from each side of the lower jaw. The tusks lean backwards at an angle of about 45°, and are spade-shaped, with prominent denticles at the tip.
