Wow Narwhal's exist! I thought they were some mythical thing, but yup I came across the truth while revising (they are randomly mentioned in a wiki article about asymmetry). Wiki also reliably tells me that the name is based on the Old Norse word nár, apparently meaning "corpse" a reference to the animal's greyish, mottled colour, like that of drown sailor. Awesome. I don't know why I currently being drawn towards all sort of old sea imagery, ships, sea monsters, octopus you name it...
