Balaenidae (bowhead whales and right whales)

Wikipedia Abstract

Balaenidae /bəˈliːnɨdiː/ is a family of whales of the suborder mysticete that contains two living genera. Historically, it is known as the right whale family, as it was thought to contain only species of right whales. Through most of the 20th Century, however, that became a much-debated (and unresolved) topic amongst the scientific community.
