Some Fun facts about the Beluga Whale:

A Beluga Whale weights around 3500 pounds, and grows as large as 18 feet long. Wow that is big! Along with their massive size, a Beluga whale is known for their high pitched calls. These calls are high- frequency noises that a Beluga Whale uses to communicate with each other. Through things like clicks and and whistles, they help each other navigate the ocean, and gather food. (they work together, that’s so nice)

You can find Beluga Whales in some of the coldest waters, they like to spend the summer months in deep waters near Alaska, Canada, Greenland and Russia. Beluga Whales migrate away from these locations to find open sea during the winter months.
