Critter of the Week: the strap-toothed whale

From the collecton Critter of the Week

Critter often highlights lesser-loved and lesser-known mini beasts but there are still some larger mammals out there we don't know much about. One of these species is the strap-toothed whale (Mesoplodon layardi), a baguette-shaped cetacean with a bizarre pair of cross-over tusks.
