Narwhal Whales

I think these whales are so fascinating with their long thin twisted tusk. It looks like they stole it from the unicorn... no wonder they are called the unicorns of the sea. Sadly they could become endangered because they are hunted for these magical looking tusk that have been sold for up to $10,000 each. Here is a short video about them.

I made this upcycled guy for the craft show in September, isn't he fun!

Narwhals are awesome! Great job on this little plush guy. I imagine that the tusk might have been tricky to make, but it looks really good.

This is so funny that I'm reading this today of all days... one of my good friends just found out that narwhals are real... she thought they were a mythical creature and was floored to find out they are real!
