Stejneger's Beaked Whale Description
  Stejneger's beaked whales are not seen at sea very often. Males are quite easy to identify as they have two massive teeth in the middle of their lower jaw which stick out on either side of their beak. Females have much straighter mouthlines. These whales have black or dark grey or brown upper bodies with slightly lighter undersides which are often scarred. They often have off-white areas around their mouths and oval scars on their sides. Their dorsal fins are small and so are their flippers. They have triangular shaped flukes with no notch in the middle and almost straight edges.
