THE UNICORNS OF THE SEA
Mainly male narwhals have their "horn" which can grow up to 8.8 feet long. They use these "horns" to impress, fight, and hunt. It is very rare if you find a female narwhal with a "horn"
Adult Narwhals can get up to 1,500 pounds and up to 20 feet in length!
Narwhals tend to travel in groups of 15 to 20 but they can be in groups of more than 500.
Narwhals are prey to animals like the polar bear, human and walrus. They also can get killed by sliding ice
Narwhals do not get killed very often, they are nearly threatened. The population count is unknown.
Narwhals tusks are actually a big tooth. They have one other tooth that's under their upper lip. Unless they are female then they only have one tooth.
Narwhals diet off of shrimp and fish and squid
Narwhals can live up to 90 years old
Narwhals are born grey but they regain colors of white and black as they age.
The scientific name for narwhal, Monodon monoceros, is derived from the Greek “one tooth, one horn”.
