Dear Erica,

Cuvier's beaked whale is a hard animal to find information on because it
has not been studied as much as other cetaceans.  Here are some references
I found - these might help you get started in your library search.

Fiscus, C.H.  1997.  Cephalopod beaks in a Cuvier's beaked whale (Ziphius
cavirostris) from
Amchitka Island, Alaska.  Marine Mammal Science 13(3):481-486.

Heyning, J.E.  1989.  Cuvier's Beaked Whale Ziphius cavirostris G. Cuvier,
1823. Pages 
289-308 in S.H. Ridgway, Sir R. Harrison, F.R.S., eds. Handbook of Marine
Vol. 4. Academic Press, Harcourt Brace Jovanovich Publishers, London.

Rice, D.W.  1978.  Beaked Whales. Pages 88-95 in D. Hadley, ed. Marine
Mammals. Pacific
Search Press, Seattle, WA.

Ridgway, S.H. 1997.  Who are the whales? The International Journal of
Animal Sound and its 
Recording 8:3-20.

Frantzis, A.  1998.  Does acoustic testing strand whales?  Nature 392:29.

Good luck!
