Do they ever accidentally puncture a fellow narwhal, does anyone know?
They seem awfully precarious in a situation like that.
Swimming in the ocean,
Causing a commotion,
Coz they are so awesome
If I remember correctly, they are stranded in this one spot for breathing so they are taking turns breathing to make sure that the area doesn't freeze over and they are stranded without an area to breath.
I have the hardest time accepting that they are real. I mean, I see the videos of them, but they are the freaking unicorn of the sea!
How do they not kabob each other?
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.
