Can you tell the difference between an Andrew's Beaked whale and a Shepherd's Beaked whale? Worry no more, as this informative and well-executed online Beaked Whale Identification Guide will provide guidance on this matter. Created by the good folks at the National Museum of Natural History's Marine Mammal Program, the site contains detailed identification guides and separate pages for each beaked whale species. In the "Species Identification" guides area, visitors can use either the skull morphology or external morphology offerings to identify species accurately. Moving on, the "Species" pages contain information about each species, including their basic morphology, habits, and geographic distribution. The site is rounded out by a cetacean stranding database and a set of beaked whale links.
