Unicorn of the Sea


The narwhal (Monodon monoceros) has a ‘horn’ like any ‘real’ unicorn should. But this horn is really an ivory tooth. It can grow up to 2.7 m (8ft 10in) and right through the upper lip! Ouch!

If a narwhal tusk is a tooth, do you think they need to brush it before bed?

  1. Super cool! Lol I don’t think it would be able to brush its tooth. The toothpaste would come right off. And it’s beautiful! A family member said a Narwhal is a unicorn that devolved into a fish. Lol
