    • The Narwhal is related to the bottle nose dolphin, belugas, harbor porpoises, and Orcas.
    • Like other Porpoises they travel in groups and eat fish, squid, and other aquatic animals. They can be seen swimming in groups of 15-20, but sometimes they will travel in much larger groups. Sometimes these Groups become trapped by ice and get killed by hunters, polar bears, or walruses.
