Narwhals

Now I realize that this isn't your typical post, but it's learn a new fact day. Just in case you didn't know, a narwhal, such as "Mr. Narwhal" from the movie Elf, is a real animal. It's actually a toothed whale that lives in the Arctic. And so what is it you ask? I always say it's a cross between a unicorn and a whale, but technically I'm wrong. That long skinny thing on it's head isn't a unicorn horn after all (imagine that), it's a helical tusk! And now ya know.
