World’s rarest whale seen for first time after New Zealand beaching

The spade-toothed beaked whale is so rare that nobody has seen one alive, but scientists have proof the species still exists. Two skeletons were identified as belonging to the species after a 17-foot whale and her calf beached themselves in New Zealand in 2010. Scientists hope the discovery will provide insights into the species and into ocean ecosystems. It was almost a missed opportunity, however, since conservation workers misidentified the carcasses as a much more common type of whale and buried them.
