Check This Book Out! Narwhals: Arctic Whales in a Melting World

NarwhalsNarwhals. Unusual creatures. What looks like a unicorn horn is actually called a tusk. In fact, the unicorn horn was modeled after the narwhal tusk (3). Why do they have this tusk? Chapter Five: Mythology delves into some of the theories such as a secondary sexual characteristic like antlers on a deer or a mane on a lion, for hunting or digging, or for sensing the salt water around them. This chapter even discusses unicorns. Chapter Three is called “A Symphony of Moos” which piqued my interest. Do narwhals sound the same as cows? To find the answer to this question, see some photographs of narwhals, or to read more about their evolutionary background, check out Narwhals: Arctic Whales in a Melting World by Todd McLeish.
