Young BiologistTrivia brain teasers have some element of trivia in them, but they are not just pure trivia questions.
A young, and ironically greedy, marine biologist wanted to be famous. At the end of a recent expedition, he explained to his team: "The narwhal's horn is used as a feeler, similar to an insect's antennae, to detect the water temperature and see if it is suitable for its own living." His team did not believe him. Why?
HintThink of the narwhal's characteristics.
AnswerNarwhals do not have horns. The 'horn' the marine biologist is referring to is a left tooth, and surely a marine biologist would know this.
