    Narwhals - randomest animals ever. Seriously. I think God just got bored and said, "Hey! Who would stick a horn on a horse? Boring. Let's stick one on a whale instead."

    The narwhal, or narwhale, Monodon monoceros, is a medium-sized toothed whale that lives year-round in the Arctic. One of two living species of whale in the Monodontidae family, along with the beluga whale, the narwhal males are distinguished by a characteristic long, straight, helical tusk extending from their upper left jaw. Found primarily in Canadian Arctic and Greenlandic waters, rarely south of 65°N latitude, the narwhal is a uniquely specialized Arctic predator. In the winter, it feeds on benthic prey, mostly flatfish, at depths of up to 1500 m under dense pack ice. Narwhal have been harvested for over a thousand years by Inuit people in northern Canada and Greenland for meat and ivory, and a regulated subsistence hunt continues to this day. While populations appear stable, the narwhal has been deemed particularly vulnerable to climate change due to a narrow geographical range and specialized diet.

Narwhale. I didn't believe until this year that they were real. I thought everyone was messing with me

Narwhals. OMG THESE ARE REAL?! WHY DID NO ONE TELL ME?!

Narwhals have extra long tusk-like teeth that grow out so long that they pierce through their lips and come out looking like a horn. The male narwhals have tusks that grow to be almost as long as the rest of the animal! In some rare cases, both the left and right front teeth grow out, so you end up with a narwhal with two horns.

The narwhal's tooth has hydrodynamic sensor capabilities. Ten million tiny nerve connections tunnel their way from the central nerve of the narwhal tusk to its outer surface. Though seemingly rigid and hard, the tusk is like a membrane with an extremely sensitive surface, capable of detecting changes in water temperature, pressure, and particle gradients.

Friendly narwhal pitcher.
