I suppose I should answer the first question people have about this blog: What’s the title mean?
As most people know, one of the most amazing things about the narwhal -- and its most notable physiological feature -- is that it has a tusk. A spiral tusk that can extend up to eight feet long. And that tusk is a tooth, one of only two teeth in its jaw.
That’s a lot of cash for a narwhal’s left tooth.
