It’s a Christmassy #FunFactFriday! #Didyouknow that there are three species of whales that live in the Arctic all year round? The Beluga Whale, the Narwhal and the Bowhead Whale! All have special adaptations to survive in the chilly environments such as smaller flippers and flukes as well as high amounts of blubber all around their body.⠀⠀

Check this incredible photo of a Narwhal!⠀
Narwhals were once thought to be the “missing link” to the mythical unicorn. Research has now shown us that the long “tusk” of this Arctic whale is in fact a tooth that protrudes from inside their mouth out through their upper lip. ⠀

Whale Wednesday! Today is the Buluga Whale! This Arctic dwelling whale has an echolocation organ in the large bulge on its head. This helps them find prey and gaps in the sheets of ice to breathe!

It’s #FunFactFriday! Did you know that Beluga Whales have an incredibly varied diet? While they primarily rely on small schooling fish they can also be found eating crabs, clams, worms, and other invertebrates that hide on the ocean floor! Belugas can uncover these tasty treats thanks to their uniquely flexible lips which allow them to squirt jets of water into the sand, blowing away their prey’s protection.⠀
