Dead beached pygmy sperm whale (Kogia breviceps) being measured by conservation staff. This whale is not frequently sighted at sea and much of the current understanding of the species comes from data collected from stranded specimens such as this one. Photographed in De Hoop Nature Reserve, South Africa.
