It’s #FunFactFriday! #DYK that 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. What exactly this tooth is used for is still a subject of study but narwhals have been seen using their teeth to break up small amounts of ice and will sometime “fence” with each other, perhaps in competition for a mate.⠀⠀

I am roughly 5 feet and 6 inches in height (~167 cm). If I stood on this male killer whale’s back, his dorsal fin would be taller than I am. Their size is often hard to grasp; even when you see them in person, it’s still difficult to gauge how large they are until they make close approaches. Even after dozens of hours spent in their presence, I am still humbled by their size.
