Narwhal Love Is True Love

I've felt honored to have rubbed a real narwhal tusk in my life. This art was created by

Ahem Natalie, but what's a narwhal? 
The narwhal, or narwhale, Monodon monoceros, is a medium-sized toothed whale that lives year-round in the Arctic. One of two living species of whale in the Monodontidae family, along with the beluga whale, narwhal males are distinguished by a long, straight, helical tusk, actually an elongated upper left canine. Found primarily in Canadian Arctic and Greenlandic waters, rarely south of 65°N latitude, the narwhal is a uniquely specialized Arctic predator. In the winter, it feeds on benthic prey, mostly flatfish, at depths of up to 1500 m under dense pack ice.[3] Narwhals have been harvested for over a thousand years by Inuit people in northern Canada and Greenland for meat and ivory, and a regulated subsistence hunt continues to this day. While populations appear stable, the narwhal has been deemed particularly vulnerable to climate change due to a narrow geographical range and specialized diet.

Was this tusk still on the Narwhal and was it in captivity? 
+Michael Washington Unfortunately not, it was in a friend's home. If I were to meet a narwhal in person I'm pretty sure I wouldn't be able to contain myself and I'd immediately start sweating glitter.
Lol @ realtime update/edits.
The narwhal is probably the closest you can get to unicorns in reality - creatures out of a fable. :)
This should go on one of those glittery sweatshirts from the 80's.
I have a narwhal horn.  My grandfather found it on a Danish beach in 1902.  It's pretty cool.
Love is for everyone:-):-):-)
Anyone seen that Futurama episode - Bender's big score, with the orphaned narwhal?
