Big Swimming Unicorns?
Have you ever seen a big unicorn swimming in the ocean?
Narwhals live in the Arctic Ocean and around the coastlines of Canada, Greenland and Norway. They love the cold water in the Northern climates of the world.
Narwhals have tusks which they use to hunt but also survive. They’re actually one of the most unique features of this animal. However, typically only the males have these long spikes sticking out of the front of their heads.
Adult male narwhals grow to be about 15 feet long and weigh over three-thousand pounds! Their tusk which is actually just a a very long, pointed tooth can grow up to 9 feet in length. I which dentist a narwhal visits?!!!
Narwhals are very social and live in groups, usually groups of three to eight whales per group but sometimes even more than that!
Biologists believe that narwhals live to about 35 years of age.
