Abstract

The Cuvier's beaked whale Ziphius carvirostris Cuvier, 1823 is a rare species mostly leading a solitary life, but is said to be cosmopolitan in distribution. However, this species has been hitherto never recorded from the Indian Ocean from an area ranging from the east coast of South Africa to Tasmania. In view of this topical interest a few notes of a male specimen of this species stranded on the reef flat of Minicoy are provided here.
