New species of whale discovered in Bay of Fundy

We had previously heard a rumour from Terri McCullough that there had been brief visions of this new whale but no actual sightings. Actually, we attributed that to Terri's overly fertile mind, but it is TRUE as this photo attests. A taxonomy friend thinks this might be the rare Diminicus  bettlensus named based on one sighting in Mexico by a Canadian tourist emerging from a canteena.

    Hi, Art--
    Am in the Pacific Northwest, specifically Orcas Island in the San Juans. Going tomorrow to try to see some Orcas from shore...
    Saw a minke in the strait yesterday! from our deck.
    Just wanted to say how disappointed I am to learn of Obama's administration trying to lift the whale hunting ban....
    Had you heard of this??
