What do narwhal eat?
Narwhals create a sort-of vacuum and suck up their food which includes squid, Greenland halibut, shrimp, Arctic cod, rockfish, flounder, and crab. Narwhals only have two vestigial teeth. The male narwhal tusk is thought to play no role in feeding because males and tuskless females consume the same diet.
How long do narwhal live for? How do they die?
Narwhals may live for 30-40 years. The only real animal predator of narwhals are killer whales that journey up to the Arctic regions. Narwhals are hunted by Inuit people for their skin, oil, meat, and tusks.
Where do narwhal live?
Narwhals spend their whole lives in Arctic waters, bordering Russia, North America, and Greenland.
How can I indentfy a narwhal male to female?
Male Narwhal are easy to identify because of there long white tusk. The tusk tend to be covered in algae except for the tip. Adult male and female narwhal are mottled and spotted grey, green, black and cream colour. Narwhal are born grey, darken in colour and then, starting with the belly, whiten with age.
They have one very long tooth or tusk they live in the water there preditor is the killer whale. They are very pretty.
