How to draw a narwhal – a large sea animal step by step

Have you heard about unicorns as the fabulous characters? So, in real life they do exist also. They live in the deep sea and they are called narwhals. They are similar to dolphins in some way. Probably it’s because of their body shape. But they have a special difference that will not allow you to confuse the “aquatic unicorn” with another sea animal – the tusk. The narwhals live in the latitudes of the Arctic ocean, so they use their tusks to break the ice which is up to 5 cm thick to get a breath of a fresh air. Some people say that the tusk has thousands of nerve endings, which help the fish to detect the temperature and the water pressure. This animal is included in the Red book in Russia.

Now the narwhal is not only the sea creature, but also the hero of our drawing instructions for kids.
