I read an article about these odd beasts of the sea ... apparently they can't be contained in an aquarium like beluga's ... not because of their horn or tusk but some other reason. They have tried to keep them in captivity around the 70's but every narwhal died after a short time.


I guess its good they are left alone to live out their lives in the sea ... their only predators are killer whales who hunt them to eat. MAN ... who hunted them for their fat skin tusks. Their tusks can't be harvested or chopped without killing the narwhal.


They often die being trapped under ice flows ... the suffocate because they can't swim while trying to find an opening anywhere.




Odd and weird facts ....
