Beluga Whale Enjoys Mariachi Band (Video)

A mariachi band took a break from performing at a wedding at the Mystic Aquarium in Norwalk, Conn. to serenade Juno the beluga whale. And it certainly appears as if he’s really enjoying their performance!

Kelly O’Neil, the aquarium’s senior trainer, however, told the New Haven Register that Juno wasn’t really dancing along to the music. Whales don’t even hear music the same way that humans do; Juno didn’t hear the sweet music of the mariachi band, he heard vibrations.

Moreover, the aquarium trains Juno whales to nod his head in response to visual cues.

The Beluga Whale Dance. Possibly thinking 'and what are those funny things on your heads?'

Very sweet even though he didn't actually hear the music.

The beluga shouldn't be there. Anyway, the video shows how it's possible to create a relationship with a beluga!

I feel they should be freed. But I also feel they are safe from Poachers
