We only ship ivory within the United States as it is; in addition, we are unable to ship ivory to these states:
California, Hawaii (all ivory); New York, New Jersey (elephant tusks and rhino horn/teeth)
As long as the remaining states have not banned ivory sales, we will continue this sale, since it is legal to sell, and therefore legal to own.
If a ban is extended to your state, it is still legal to own what you have purchased in perpetuity, but not to re-sell.
We expect the bans to expand over time to eventually include all 50 states. By all indications this will likely take place within the next 2-3 years
Prices shown are full-price, please take 45% off at the time you make payment.
ABOUT THE NARWHAL
Narwhals (aka Monodon monoceros)
My IUCN status: Near threatened. The only reason we have these for sale is that they were imported before 1970 to the U.S., after which time the U.S. does not import them from Canada. We can only ship them within the United States.
It is one of the rarest animals in the ocean. The narwhal is known for its distinct tusk, which landed it the nickname "unicorn of the sea." But the "tusk" is actually a tooth! The teeth are very sensitive, and have up to 10 million nerve endings inside each one. All are born with two teeth, but they change as we get older. Males usually have one tooth that becomes much more prominent than the other, where females typically lose their teeth. The tooth can grow up to 9 feet long! Sometimes a double tooth grows permanently.
I'm a porpoise and am related to orcas, harbor porpoises and bottlenose dolphins. Porpoises like us travel in groups called pods. Narwhal pods are usually made up of anywhere from 10 to 100 individuals but sometimes our pods can number almost a thousand. My closest relative is the beluga whale, here is a photo of both the beluga and the narwhal.
How long they live: Up to 50 years
Where they like to hang out: in the frigid cold waters in and around the Arctic.
Where they live: Unlike other whale species that migrate from the Arctic in the winter, they spend the whole year in the circumpolar Arctic waters of Canada, Greenland and Russia.
What they like to eat: Mainly squid, fish and shrimp
The narwhal was one of the many species originally described by Linnaeus in his Systema Naturae. Its name is derived from the Old Norse word nár, meaning "corpse", in reference to the animal's greyish, mottled pigmentation, like that of a drowned sailor, and its summer-time habit of lying still at or near the surface of the sea (called "logging"). The scientific name, Monodon monoceros, is derived from the Greek: "one-tooth one-horn"
