The good news is, they are not extinct. The bad news, two extremely rare Spade-toothed beaked whales, beached themselves and died in New Zealand.
Discovered in 1872, no one had ever seen this species alive. The only proof that they hadn’t gone extinct were two skulls. A partial skull found in New Zealand in the 1950′s and one in Chile in 1986. Hard to believe this is the first time an entire whale has been seen considering they are over 5 meters in length.
