‘Arctic unicorns’ in icy display

My friend Mike just sent me this awesome video about the ellusive Narwhal. I have a total hard-on for this mammal. I know that sounds weird, but check it out.

BBC
Remarkable footage of elusive narwhal has been captured.
A BBC team used aerial cameras to film the creatures during their epic summer migration, as they navigated through cracks in the melting Arctic sea ice. They believe the footage, which forms part of the BBC Natural History Unit’s new series Nature’s Great Events, is the first of its kind. Narwhal are sometimes called “Arctic unicorns” because of the long, spiral tusk that protrudes from their jaws. The appendages can reach more than 2m (7ft) in length; scientists believe males use them to attract potential mates.
