Northern bottlenose whale
The northern bottlenose whale is a large member of the beaked whale family. Their most distinguishing feature is their short dolphin-like beak that occurs just in front of their bulbous-shaped forehead. Northern bottlenose whales have a North Atlantic distribution. They occur from the coast of Maine northward in the West Atlantic and from the United Kingdom northward in the East Atlantic. They occur northward to the summer ice edges on both sides of the Atlantic.
