Monodontidae (beluga and narwhal)

Wikipedia Abstract

The cetacean family Monodontidae comprises two unusual whale species, the narwhal, in which the male has a long tusk, and the dorsal fin-lacking, pure white beluga whale. They are native to coastal regions and pack ice around the Arctic Sea. Belugas can be found in the far north of the Atlantic and Pacific Oceans; the distribution of narwhals is restricted to the Arctic and Atlantic Oceans.
