Narwhals are the ocean’s unicorns. They look like a beluga whale got drunk and spent a night of passion with the mythical horses and this was the result. For year’s scientists have studied the uni-tusked animals without being able to figure out exactly what purpose the horn serves… other than looking awesome. Now, we can thank drones for capture the first ever footage that shows them using them to stun and generally kick the ass of fish that it wants in its belly.
In this footage, a narwhal can be seen using quick taps of its tusk to stun Arctic cod, rendering them immobile and thus easier to capture and eat. The behaviour was captured by two drones belonging to documentary filmmaker Adam Ravetch and Fisheries and Oceans Canada, which was leading the narwhal research camp.
