A particular type of whale

It's a dumb question really. But I'm curious to know. It's about this whale I've seen in the movie and book of the Walt Disney character Pinocchio. Would you know of such a whale. Does it even exist?

I'm afraid Pinocchio isn't in my reference library, so I did a Google search. Most fictional whales are based at least loosely on the Sperm Whale, and Monstro appears to be no exception. It is, after all, the only really big whale with teeth and is the whale in Moby Dick.
