Beluga's adopt Narwhal A young, orphaned peckled gray male Narwhal became friends with a group of 10 male
beluga whales in eastern Canada, where were spotted for three consecutive years in Canada's St. Lawrence River. Often compared with legendary mythical Unicorn, the Narwhal (Monodon
monoceros), is a medium-sized toothed whale with a large tusk. Together with the beluga’s, they are the only extant members of the family Monodontidae, sometimes
referred to as the "white whales. The fearful tusk has grown from a protruding tooth, which makes the Narwhal a powerful predator in the Arctic waters. The tusk also serves as a sensory organ used for sensing and communication with females, and display of
dominance towards other males.
