The Smithsonian website has a great article and slideshow about the Narwhal. This whale has a single horn sprouting from the middle of its forehead, much like the mythical unicorn.

I remember reading about this animal as a child. I’m not sure what book it was in, but I seem to remember a large book filled with animal drawings and information. Up until today, if you had asked me if such a creature existed, I would have more than likely said no and thought is was nothing more than a childhood make-believe memory.

It’s nice to see something amazing every once in a while that makes you fell like a child again-when everything was amazing and new.
