Killer sperm whale

My second attempt at paleoart with this weird looking cetacean from the late Miocene, 11.608 to 7.246 millions years ago. 

Zygophyseter Varolai was similar to the sperm whale and measured from 6.5 to 7m. The common name of killer sperm whale refers both to its relation to modern day sperm whales, and to its similarity in size and feeding adaptation to the killer whale.

Comments of course are welcome!

I can't believe I've never heard of this cetacean it's so magnificent. Also when they call something a killer sperm whale you know it's bad ass.
