Narwhal-beluga hybrid

Narwhals and beluga whales are the only two living species of the Monodontidae family, though narwhals are distinct in that they have a long, straight, spiraled tusk extending from their upper left jaw.

Though extremely unusual, at least one hybrid between the two species has been documented from west Greenland.
