Narwhal (Monodon), a genus of toothed whales, of the Dolphin family, with one species (M. monoceros), from the Arctic seas of both hemispheres. The adult male possesses a long, spirally - twisted tusk or "horn," really the abnormally developed canine tooth of the left side; the tooth on the right is very rarely developed, though this sometimes occurs. It is rarely present in females, though Scoresby found a female with a tusk over four feet long. The use of these weapons is unknown. The body of a full-grown male may be 14 feet long, and the tusk from 6 feet to 10 feet. The general colour of the youug is bluish-grey; older animals are lighter with dark spots. Narwhals are hunted for the oil they yield, and the ivory of their tusks.

“Let us then approach the throne of grace with confidence, so that we may receive mercy and find grace to help us in our time of need.”
