Body Systems Resperation: uses a blow-hole to intake air and to shut out water whilst the animal is diving Excretion: Nitrogenous waste, along with chlorine, is excreted through a system of kidneys as the Narwhal has no pores to excrete waste from. The anus is a mere slit on the rear of the Narwhal, where the waste is excreted. also exhales gaseous nitrogen Transport: Blood circulates through the body. Their arteries in their fins and tail are surrounded by veins. The heart of the Narwhal is 4 chambered, with 2 chambers on each side. "The narwhal!." . N.p.. Web.
