There are two populations known of - one in the Northern Hemisphere in the North Atlantic, North and Baltic Seas. The other lives in Antarctic waters, covering the entire continental coastal areas. While their remote location makes guesses into their population difficult, these whales are protected under several international treaties.

Narwhal Whale – Signed Fine Art Print

$19.95$27.95

Information about the Narwhal Whale:

The Narwhal - or Narwhale - is a marine mammal native to the freezing waters of the Arctic. Is it a toothed whale and one of two species of the Monodontidae family (the other being the Beluga Whale . They are most noted for their characteristic "horn" which is really an overgrown tusk that grown out of a hole in the animal's upper lip. Biologists have pondered for years why the Narwhal has this tusk, as it seems to serve no purpose. The Narwhale spends much of it's time under pack ice, diving to depths of about 4500 feet or 1500 meters. They are an important food source for the native peoples of the Canadian Arctic and Greenland. While the extreme remoteness of their habitat keeps their populations mostly stable, climate change is having an effect on these whale as the ocean's waters warm up and the dense pack ice retreats further north each year.

Large bull males can weigh in upwards of 5,000 pounds (2,3000 kg) and be 14 feet long (4 meters.) Male elephant seals are fiercely territorial and are famous for their brutal fights with one another during the mating season, when a dominate male is protecting his harem of females from a challenger.

The migration between the ice and the beach can be long distance and dramatic. In late spring and summer hundreds of thousands of these animals migrate from the Bering Sea to the Chukchi sea through the Bering Strait.

Ribbon Seal – Signed Fine Art Print

$19.95$27.95

Information about the Ribbon Seal:

The Ribbon Seal is a medium-sized pinniped from the true seal family (Phocidae). A seasonally ice-bound species, it is found in the Arctic and Subarctic regions of the North Pacific Ocean, notably in the Bering Sea and Sea of Okhotsk. It is distinguished by its striking coloration, with two wide white strips and two circles against dark brown or black fur. It is the only living species in the genus Histriophoca. The ribbon seal lives in the Arctic parts of the Pacific Ocean. During winter and spring, it hauls out on pack ice to breed, molt, and give birth. During this time, it is found at the ice front in the Bering and Okhotsk Seas. During the summer and autumn, the ribbon seal lives in open water, though some move north as the ice recedes with warmer temperatures. Little is known about its habit during this time, as it is so far from land and human observation. The ribbon seal almost never comes to land.

As well as the tropical parts of the Indian, Pacific and Atlantic Oceans, they are also found in the Persian Gulf and Mediterranean and Red Seas, but not the Black Sea. They range as far north as the Gulf of Alaska and southern Greenland and as far south as Tierra del Fuego.[3] Their preferred environment is just off the continental shelf on steep banks, with water depths varying from 400–1,000 m (1,300–3,300 ft) and water temperatures at least 10°C (50°F) and preferably 15-20°C (59-68°F). It is the only member of the genus Grampus. It's named after Antoine Risso, whose description formed the basis of the first public description of the animal, by Georges Cuvier, in 1812.

These gregarious mammals are often live n large, active schools, and can be seen jumping and splashing. They are often so loud they can be heard from a considerable distance. These dolphins feed primarily on squid and fish, which are caught using cooperative fishing methods like herding large shoals of fish.
