This new extreme Pilotwhale was found in the Noorth-sea and discibed in the magazine ”deinsea” by Mr K.Post and E. Kompanje. Mr Post gave me the information for the illustration and superviced the scienctific accurantecy. We tried to give a general idea of the anathomie of this animal and the herdlife of Pilot whals helped to do so.
