As soon as November comes, the men begin to look for narwhals.

Besides seals these natives also pursue the white whales and narwhals which frequent the sound.

Fig. 52 represents a nuguit from Greenland, of the form mentioned by Cranz; it is armed with the point of the narwhals tusk.

Two of these were completely equipped for whaling, so as to be able to follow and capture walruses and narwhals.

Yesterday we were all out; I saw only one seal, but was refreshed by the sight of a dozen narwhals.

Seals are often shot, bear tracks are common, and narwhals are frequently seen migrating northward.

There was a whole school of narwhals in the lane breathing and blowing ceaselessly.

White whales, narwhals, seals—among them the Phoca leonina with his puffed cheeks—and two bears, were seen.

I never saw a more graceful, striking, and beautiful exhibition than the unrestrained play of these narwhals.

In a large opening were seen the grey backs of narwhals rolling over in the dark-blue water.
