Family - Monodontidae 
(Norwal & Buluga)


The family Monodontidae consists of two unusual animals called narwhal and the Beluga. They are both medium-sized whales they are three to five meters in length. They generally weigh around 1600 kg. They generally live in the far North Pacific and Atlantic and in the Arctic Ocean. They live on a carnivorous diet of fish, mollusks, and small causations. Monodontidae lives in schools with up to 100 of them each. They both have similar colors black, white, and grey. Both of the species have a very high vocal range. Narwhal and the Beluga both lack a true dorsal fin, but Narwhals do have distinctive ridges on their backs. As you can see this family has many interesting features.
