I saw this on my buddy's blog, washed up of the shore of mexico and supposedly it is a new species, kinda looks like a mini whale to me.... any addtional info would be appreciated.

scroll about 1/5 down the page... under the "baja creature" is another big crazy fish. sorry if repost.

the second fish is an oarfish. one was recently caught on film for the first time ever. hell of a cool fish.

the second? dunno. maybe an infant whale?

The first one seems to look sort of like a bottlenose dolphin that didnt mature its mouth, or snout?

The 2nd one looks very very cool. I guess its an Oarfish. One very cool looking thing!

I am 90% sure is a young delphin, I just need to nail the correct species.

Edit: Can't seem to find the correct species, but I can post a few pictures as why I believe it to be a dolphin, or at least a related species.

Irrawaddy Dolphin:

Pygmy killer Whale:

Hmm. Interesting indeed. I'm with Thain Esh Kelch as well, it closely resembles the Irrawaddy Dolphin, or at least the genus Cephalorhynchus due to the short snout/blunt head and the lack of vestigial hind flippers.

There are a couple of factors making the Irrawaddy very unlikely... It's a freshwater dolphin, it's from Asia (a long way from Mexico) and the mouth is way to small (of this animal) compared to that of the Irrawaddy.

I would however rather put my money on porpoise. It's a very small animal (porpoises are smaller than dolphins), it has the broad-based, low and triangular dorsal fin of the porpoise and is blunt-nosed.

I'll give it some more thought. Watch this space.

(I’m pretty certain it’s not some sort of “mini whale”.)

And I'm with you on that one. Its definately post-natal, and well, that kinda rules out whale-size.

The whale almost looks like a narwhal without the tusk. The long one ( oarfish ) is an actual type of fish, nothing really new. However, that fish alone is probably behind hundreds of sea-serpent sightings.

I paid more attention to the interview XXL had with DMX! HA HA HA HA

The Baja creature reminds me a lot of the Florida sea serpent. Florida's not too far from Mexico, either.
