Naomi and the Narwhals



N is for me! And because I'm not all that exciting in myself, N is also for Narwhals.

Narwhals might just be one of the most interesting and unique animals on earth (in my opinion). For those of you who don't know about narwhals - it's time you learned! You will not regret it I promise.

These mystical whales live in the cold waters of the Arctic and so they are not something you will often spot on your average whale watching trip! I would however say it is one of my life's ambitions to see one of these live in the flesh, in the wild, one day before I die...


In medieval times, many believed that narwhal tusks (the long pointy bit at the front if you haven't figured that out yet) were actually the horn of the mythical unicorn and they were regarded as having magical power. Today, I still believe they have a magical power....the power to amaze!

I have already posted about my felt narwhals fairly recently, but I just love this cute little guy so much I want to share him with the world over and over again:



I hope you like him as much as I do! Thank you for visiting :)
