Narwhals are the unicorns of the sea which is why we love ’em! You know, because unicorns are real but as opposed to Narwhals they live on land. Facts.
The narwhal tusk—most commonly found on males—is actually an enlarged protruding tooth with sensory capability and up to 10 million nerve endings inside. Ouch! It lives year-round in the Arctic waters around Greenland, Canada, and Russia and is the member of the Monodontidae family along with the beluga whale.
Unfortunately, climate change and pollution are threatening their existence. Let’s all do our part to limit our emissions (Greenhouse not…never mind.) and reduce single use plastics!
