  1. delphinapterus

    Delphinapterus is a genus of porpoise comprising two species: the beluga whale and the narwhal. These are marine mammals adapted to living in the cold Arctic regions. They have specialized biological features that allow them to survive in such harsh environments, such as blubber for insulation and a streamline body shape for efficient swimming. The name "Delphinapterus" means "whale without fin" in Greek, referring to the near-absence of a back fin in these animals.
