Floe Edge


Nunavut, Canada, 2006

“Gathering of the Unicorns” exhibits one of the most unique – almost fantastical – animals from the oceans: the narwhal. Their most identifiable feature, often misnomered as a horn, is actually an elongated upper left canine, a helical tusk filled with millions of nerve endings that transmit information from surrounding seawater, giving the narwhal knowledge of both where they are, and where other narwhals have been. They have also been seen using these tusks as a leading mechanism, as a stunning tool for cod, one of their many prey.”
