Little is known about this whale, as researching this species has proven to be very hard due to their rare appearances, remote habitat, and elusive nature. Moreover, pygmy beaked whale also seems to favor deep offshore water for swimming away from coastline and sea shores. Scientists have only examined 13 dead specimens to date, and less than five reliable sightings have ever been recorded.
Likewise, for the same reason, the pygmy beaked whale is seldom hunted as it dwells deep into the ocean. Accidental traps in fishing gear are also rare, and no reliable data is present about their natural predators and threats.
