The Cuvier's beaked whale (Ziphius cavirostris) was a small-medium sized cetacean, a toothed whale, indigenous to planet Earth.

The image of a Cuvier's beaked whale appeared on a display within the HMS Bounty when Spock searched for a match for the sounds of the Cetacean Probe amongst Earth's animals.

In the year 1986, a model of the whale was displayed in a glass case at the Cetacean Institute in Sausalito, California. (TOS movie & novelization: Star Trek IV: The Voyage Home)
