Stejneger’s beaked whale in Los Angeles

http://www.newsdaily.com/article/8b43ccae884d70de37f4b2ff7ad32c65/rare-whale-found-dead-in-southern-california

I particularly like the journalist’s brilliant term “saber-toothed whale” 😉

Mesoplodon stejnegeri is relatively easy to see in summer around Commander Islands, but becomes progressively rarer as you move southeast. However, I don’t think it’s the first South Californian record.
