After he arrives in the Atlantic Ocean, the young narwhal meets a spiny ray who seems to have the horn. The young narwhal asks to the spiny ray to give back the horn but he refuses and speeds off in the other direction.

Narwhal: Hey you! You stole the old narwhal's horn, didn't you? Bring it to me! - Spiny ray: Keep dreaming! It's my horn now!

The Spiny ray

Being part of the shark family, the ray has a cartilaginous fish body. The spiny ray (Raja radiata) lives in the seabed where it lurks under the sand for camouflage and hunting. It feeds mainly on small fish and crustaceans found in the deep sea, where it lives.
