Cuvier’s beaked whale (Ziphius cavirostris)

Cuvier’s beaked whale (a.k.a. the goosebeak whale) is a medium-sized toothed whale that can be found travelling throughout most of the world's major oceans.

This marine mammal obtained its name from anatomist Georges Cuvier who first identified this species from a skull that was found in the Mediterranean coast of France.

These whales are a fairly abundant and solitary species that rarely bring attention to themselves or display acrobatic behaviors.

They are also amazing divers with some estimates stating that these whales can hold their breath for over 120 minutes when they are searching for prey.
