Breaching True's Beaked Whales (image) PeerJ Share Print E-Mail Caption True's beaked whales sometimes breach and this gives observers a better opportunity to identify the species. Here, the two little white dots in the front of the beak show that this animal is a male True's beaked whale. Females do not have erupted teeth and males of other similar beaked whale species have the teeth in different positions along the mouthline.
