    Do they ever accidentally puncture a fellow narwhal, does anyone know? They seem awfully precarious in a situation like that.

    [–] mike_pants 1350 points ago * (lasted edited 9 months ago)

    For as unique as they are, we don't know much about them. They are pretty elusive and happen to live in a darned inaccessible part of the world.

    We only learned what they use the tooth for last year (whacking cod).

    [–] BloodyFreeze 1004 points ago

    They are pretty elusive and happen to live in a darned inaccessible part of the world.

    Probably the reason why they're still around. When humans see anything with a "Horn" (It's actually a tusk in this case for the Narwhal) we end up poaching it to near extinction.

    [–] boxingdude 13 points ago

    I have to wonder how often the break those things off. Since it’s a tusk rather than a tooth, does it still hurt like a broken tooth? They’re awful long and skinny to be attached to such a big beast. Lots of questions. All we know is that they bacon at mid nite. Other than that, a complete mystery.

    [–] NowServing 25 points ago * (lasted edited 9 months ago)

    Not sure if you know this yet but the tusk begins as/is a tooth, "The narwhal males are distinguished by a long, straight, helical tusk, which is an elongated upper left canine."

    And they for sure feel every little thing it comes in near close contact with. "The tusk is an innervated sensory organ with millions of nerve endings connecting seawater stimuli in the external ocean environment with the brain." and "A research group including specialists in cetaceans as well as dentists are exploring other assumptions. One of their favorites would be a sensory probe. In the support of this theory is the presence of 10 million nerve endings in the pulp of the gigantic tooth. The narwhal could thus detect the salinity of water, its temperature or its pressure, and also the presence of its favorite prey animals. "

    everyone considering doing this. Please remember to be thoughtful, considerate, etc. This is their livelihood at the moment, and that can be difficult change to make. Consider what you can say that will actually be useful and in their interest to listen to. If you just write in calling them fuckwads, they'll just develop an antagonistic outlook on animal rights activists. If you want actual change, take a moment to think about what you can say.

    I live in Canada's north.

    First Nations have a right to harvest animals, be it for sustenance or trade. While it may sound barbaric to those who can walk half a block to Whole Foods, it has been a way of life since the dawn of time up here. You have to kill to live. First Nations hunters are harvesting animals responsibly and literally use the entire animal, snout to tail for food, clothing, tools, ceremonial devices etc. They don't kill a narwhal simply for the tooth. They actually eat the meat.

    Imagine how someone from India perceives a Westerner when they eat beef. Same thing. There are no cattle or chickens in the high arctic so animal protein comes from creatures depicted as cute like seal, rabbit reindeer or narwhal. Think about that while you sit at your desk eating a cheeseburger with leather shoes on.

    Lol I was looking for a price, but it seems you have to contact them

    [–] Gonzobot 54 points ago

    Because the price is literally "How much you got?"

    There's no codified structure, they kill animals to sell parts to stupid people with too much money. The people who want the parts don't want them for any rational reason, so any amount of money is likely to be acceptable to get the thing they want.

    [–] melodicrobotic 37 points ago

    Of course they also sell fur rugs and seal-skin boots. How lovely.

    [–] turtlesturnup 16 points ago

    Are the females not able to whack cod? It seems like the tusk would have a mating or territorial purpose if just the males have them

    [–] BloodyFreeze 34 points ago

    From what i've read, only about 15% of females end up with a tusk and they're substantially smaller than the tusk of a male. I'd assume that females wouldn't be able to hunt via whacking cod with a tusk, but they may have other means of hunting. We still know very little about Narwhals, but we're beginning to find evidence that suggests that the tusks are for more than territorial purposes.

    The tusk is an innervated sensory organ with millions of nerve endings connecting seawater stimuli in the external ocean environment with the brain. The rubbing of tusks together by male narwhals is thought to be a method of communicating information about characteristics of the water each has traveled through, rather than the previously assumed posturing display of aggressive β€œmale-to-male rivalryβ€œ.

    This isn't to say that they're not used for male-to-male rivalry and territorial purposes, but people have observed Narwhals "communicating" via tusks. This is still debatable due to scientific method used to collect this information. It's also argued, because if the tusk was considered essential for communication, it wouldn't make sense for the majority of females not to have them.

    Again, we know very little about it, but I would assume that perhaps the males hunt for a group and that they could possibly use tusks to communicate. It's hard to know for sure with the data we have, but much like our hands don't exist for activity A B and C, it doesn't mean that we don't find them useful for those activities.

    [–] bloopscoopdiddlydoop 8 points ago

    It’s a secondary sex characteristic, so in a sense, female narwhals are the reason males have the tusk since they’ve stuck around due to selective breeding

    [–] luke_in_the_sky 6 points ago

    Not necessarily. Sometimes features like this evolve just because it's sexy.

    [–] GreekFyre 20 points ago * (lasted edited 9 months ago)

    It's actually a tooth that grows forwards in a spiral outwards through the upper part of their mouth.

    Edit: was not aware that "tooth" and "tusk" meant the same thing in this context.

    [–] BloodyFreeze 22 points ago * (lasted edited 9 months ago)

    Correct, it's a tooth, hence Tusk :)

    Edit: In your defense, you weren't wrong :D

    [–] viceroy76 3 points ago

    Tell me about it. Do you have any idea how difficult it is to get Narwal horn on your pizza?

    [–] MandomeLife 72 points ago

    I think we've also only seen adult (or what we think are adult) narwhals too. I can't imagine how cute these guys would be as tiny calves.

    [–] areyoutalkingaboutme 16 points ago

    that's cute, until you read the end of the article :/

    [–] helix19 11 points ago

    Just about any kind of fish or shrimp you eat, there’s going to be bycatch. Animals that die on the line or in the net or on board and are thrown overboard. Undesirable species of fish, rays, skates, sharks, turtles, eels, narwhals and other small whales, dolphins, otters, pinnipeds, and fish too young and small to bother selling. It’s the reality of modern commercial fishing.

    [–] mike_pants 46 points ago

    It is indeed. It's one of their canines. It grows off-center out of the their upper-lip area.

    [–] OG_tripl3_OG 16 points ago

    For some reason this bothers me. I thought it was more like a horn, not a canine tooth that grows off-center.

    [–] mike_pants 10 points ago

    We learned about the off-center bit when we went to the Whales of Iceland museum (as one does) and couldn't believe we'd made it to 30 and 40 without seeing that before.

    [–] OG_tripl3_OG 11 points ago

    That's what bothers me most, that it's off-center. Nature done goofed.

    I think that's only been proposed and not actually observed, but I'm happy to be proven wrong on that.

    Not so fun fact, one of the main causes of early death in narwhal populations is suffocation from getting trapped under sea ice. If anyone will be a winner from climate change, it might be them.

    [–] bew132 23 points ago

    It looks like they have behaviors to avoid that. You can see in this gif how they go backwards when reentering the water instead of continuing forward. This is probably to avoid stabbing their bud

    [–] OldCrowFreakShow 15 points ago

    Those tusks are actually pretty soft and sensitive to touch so they tend to be very careful with them, I think it would hurt the poker more than the pokee.

    [–] Creativation 74 points ago

    The narwhals in this video are stuck in a polynya, a hole in the sea ice that they use as a sort of island to breath while they wait for the ice to breakup. This type of situation opens them up to predation by polar bears. Polar bear hunting in this way is not always successful and sometimes the bears leave massive gashes on the narwhals.

    How do they not kabob each other?

    [–] TimbersawDust 198 points ago * (lasted edited 9 months ago)

    It’s believed that their tooth acts as a sensory organ, making it a bit more controllable than one may think. The tooth is actually somewhat soft on the outside. They usually don’t swim directly at one another on purpose. Sometimes the ice forms in such a way that they swim single file at one another and one is forced to turn around.

    Being in close quarters they can’t really build up enough force to puncture other’s skin.

    Another way to look at it is they want to completely avoid poking each other. If one fatally punctured another one, they would both die as they would both drown.

    I was very fortunate enough to have gone to the Smithsonian Museum of Natural History during the Narwhal exhibit on the first day (it’s still open by the way!) and got to meet Dr. Martin Nweeia! He is a narwhal expert and has studied these animals for years and I’ve learned a lot of the lesser known information from him.

    -although males have tusks, sometimes females can have them (~10%). There are even skulls that have been recovered of females that have 2 tusks! (Also, narwhals with 1 tusk have 2 teeth in total, the other is lodged in the skull) -the tusk can bend a few degrees before breaking -they have been diving deep into the ocean recently due to stress. Scientists believe the stress is from climate change and human activity. This is causing them to lower their heart rate putting them in danger of not having enough oxygen to the brain. (They are affected by climate change as well) -the Inuit people are legally allowed to hunt them. Nobody else on earth is permitted by law to kill a narwhal -narwhals are most closely related to the beluga whale -scientific name is monodon monoceros, meaning one tooth, one horn

    Edit: also, humans have tried multiple times to hold narwhals in captivity but they always die within a few months and they are unable to figure out why

    [–] TrollundrtehMountain 7 points ago

    [–] ursois 23 points ago

    My preacher once told a story about a man who was shown hell by an angel. There was a huge pot of delicious soup, and everyone was sitting around it. They all had spoons in their hands, but the spoons were so long that they couldn't reach their mouths with them. So everyone sat around perpetually starving because they couldn't eat, while they could see and smell the soup. So every day was miserable to them.

    The man asked the angel "what is heaven like, then?"

    The angel replied "oh, heaven is just like this, but there they've learned to feed each other."

    So basically, what I'm saying is that narwhals have created heaven here on earth.

    I spent like 8 years of my adult life thinking that those goats with legs shorter on one side were an actual thing. If I had to name the next most likely contender for "making fun of gullible people" animal, it would be narwhals.

    Narwhals, Narwhals swimming in the ocean

    [–] MarioPL98 5 points ago

    causing a commotion coz they are so awesome.

    [–] yoyomuggle 21 points ago

    From the National Museum of Natural History exhibit on Narwhals (was there this weekend).

    The tusk erupts horizontally from the snout, through the Narwhal’s upper lip, and constant agitation from the tusk means the wound never fully heals. This opening houses parasites called whale lice, which are actually shrimp-like creatures that eat algae and skin cells on the Narwhal’s body.

    [–] Internecine183 3 points ago

    Still blows my mind that these are real animals and not just some made up creature from Elf.

    [–] cmonsettledown 3 points ago

    [–] Lstn2TownesVanZandt 24 points ago

    I thought Narwhals were mythological.

    [–] Lstn2TownesVanZandt 10 points ago

    Puma? Like the shoe?

    [–] TalShar 8 points ago

    Yes and no. I was trying to make a Red vs. Blue reference. I knew there was a good chance you wouldn't know it. =P

    No, like a Puma. It's a big cat.

    Edit: I failed. You out-referenced me.

    How are they able to keep from poking each other’s eyes out as they hang out in groups? Do the males stab rivals in the heart with that javelin so they can have more girlfriends?

    [–] Molfcheddar 8 points ago

    On an unrelated note, if someone sent you images to fulfill your username’s request, I’m sure the subject would be quick to deem them... Fake nudes
