" ICE JUMPERS": incredible new species of marine mammals filmed !

We've have sent this picture to the most reknowned marine mammals specialists, but none could help us to identify the beast. If you look at closely, you could indeed identify the body of a sperm whale. Just the head differs. We all know that sperm whales ( Macrophyster catodon) could, offshore Australia, meet salt water crocodiles (Crocodilus porosus). But, to date, no one has ever met an hybrid species of these two very different animals. If a reader could help us to identify this beast, we would be very grateful. Or at least, find a nickname: we are desesperate to give him a name for the voice over of our next film.
