What Is A Narwhal?

While I don't profess to be an expert on animals, I typically have at least HEARD of an animal before. Not so with the narwhal. Dubbed “the unicorn of the sea,” the narwhal is a type of whale with a long, spiral tusk... and is kind of magical. Fine, it's not magical. While they’re not necessarily as cute as manatees or (duh!) dolphins, this fascinating, lesser-known creature is making waves, because believe it or not, they are more at risk from global warming than polar bears. Why you need to know any of this? No clue, but it's a fun factoid!
