Whale species found (again)

A new whale species thought to live in the deep ocean has been discovered (or rediscovered) by scientists in Sri Lanka. The amazing find came to light after researchers began studying seven whales that washed up and stranded on a remote tropical islands in the Indian and Pacific Oceans. The Mesoplodon hotaula are part of the beaked whale family, which is a group of toothed whales distantly related to sperm whales.
