It’s the #twelvedaysofwhalemas Day Three: #didyouknow that Dugongs and Manatees are Sirenians not Cetaceans? Although they resemble whales in many ways they are a different taxonomic order referring to herbivorous marine mammals. There is one species of Dugong, three species of Manatee and the extinct Steller’s Sea Cow which used to reside in the North Pacific Ocean.⠀⠀

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.⠀⠀
