The narwhal is an incredibly powerful and majestic whale that has a long tusk from a protruding canine tooth. Narwhals normally stick together in groups of about five to ten, and sometimes up to 20 outside the summer. The Inuit, who call a tusked narwhal qilalugaq tugaalik, are allowed to hunt the whale legally for subsistence. Narwhals can live up to 50 years.
