Appearance

Narwhal has short light grey hair, with dark grey hair on the top of her head. The light grey hair has dark grey spots, and the dark grey hair has darker spots behind the ears. She has a long strand of grey and blue hair that is tied with a bow. There is a dark spot on the top of her head that represents the blowhole of the narwhal. Her eyes are blue. Narwhal also has a light grey tail with dark grey spots.

Narwhal wears a white sailor-style dress with grey spots and grey buttons. The dress also has a grey collar and blue frills at the bottom. Narwhal also wears a white undershirt, a black choker, and black shoes with white socks. Narwhal holds a spear that is a transformed tusk, representing her species' tusk.The spear has a blue gem at the bottom.

In Real Life

During summer, multiple groups of narwhals join together, creating huge aggregations of up to 1000 animals
Narwhals live in small groups of 5-20 animals in the arctic region; close to the Norwegian, Greenland and Russian shores during summer and under packed ice in winter. Though narwhals usually stay close to the surface, they are able to dive up to a depth of 1,500 meters and stay submerged for over 20 minutes. Their diet consists of various fish, shrimp and squids.

All narwhals have two upper teeth. In males, one of them breaks through the upper lip, growing into a long tusk. Their tusk is hollow and can break off rather easily rendering them unusable as a weapon. It has millions of nerve ends and is likely used to gather all kinds of information, such as measuring temperature, pressure and salt content of the surrounding water, to help determine how much prey is in the area. Narwhals move their head in quick, jutting moves to strike smaller prey with their tusk to briefly stun them. They have also been observed rubbing their tusks with each other. This may be done to clean the tusks, share information or to establish a hierarchy.

Because narwhals are not very fast, they use different strategies such as diving or prolonged submersion to escape their natural predators, which include Greenland sharks, polar bears, orcas and humans. Pollution, increased ship travel and global warming are other threats to narwhals, killing both narwhals and their prey.

Trivia

  • The name "Narwhal" derives from Old Norse "nár", meaning corpse, due to them often lying on the surface near shores without moving and their coloration similar to that of drowned sailors
  • Occasionally, the second tooth grows into another tusk.
  • Some females grow a tusk as well.
