The picture of the La Prensa as well as another picture of ABC Sevilla is not of an Cuvier's beaked whale (Ziphius cavirostris). Alone from descriptions of the length a Cuvier's beaked whale can be excluded as the body length is up to seven meters. Its skull about one meter therefore.

Large maxilla, distinct premaxilla and cranial crest (formed from maxillae, frontal- and occipital bone) clearly show its an sperm whale (Physeter macrocephalus) instead.
