NBC News informs us that “Researchers think they spotted new whale species off Mexico“. A group of researchers tracking a group of rare and shy beaked whales think they discovered a new whale species. When a group of whales surfaced near their boat, they excitedly took photos and recordings.
At first, they thought the whales might have been the rare beaked whales. After taking photos and sound recordings, they realized the differences between the whales. They still have tests to do for confirmation, but remain optimistic. No one would ever consider discovering a new animal the size of a large horse on land, but the ocean still holds some mystery.
