My First "PPPBBBBFFFFTTTHH!!!"

Check out this new bebeh Beluga over at Chicago's Shedd Aquarium.

He's all taking his first bref, blowing air out his blowhole: ""PPPBBBBFFFFTTTHH!!!"

This is one of the cutest posts ever. I love the snuggle action. Why don't we have a separate category for aquatic cuteness? I would spend all day in that section.

Wasn't there a childrens song that went "Baby Beluga in the deep blue sea" or something to that extent.

Baby Beluga!
Baby Beluga!

There was a time I wondered if I would ever be able to stop singing that song. [baby beluga] In spite of that I really like it and let's face it, it is PERFECT for this little guy :D
Deep sea cute!

Baby beluga in the deep blue sea,
Swim so wild and you swim so free.
Heaven above and the sea below,
And a little white whale on the go.

Baby beluga, baby beluga,
Is the water warm? Is your mama home,
With you so happy?

Way down yonder where the dolphins play,
Where you dive and splash all day,
Waves roll in and the waves roll out.
See the water squirting out of your spout.

Baby beluga, oh, baby beluga,
Sing your little song, sing for all your friends.
We like to hear you.

When it's dark, you're home and fed.
Curled up snug in your waterbed.
Moon is shining and the stars are out.
Good night, little whale, good night.

Baby beluga, oh, baby beluga,
With tomorrow's sun, another day's begun.
You'll soon be waking.

Baby beluga in the deep blue sea,
Swim so wild and you swim so free.
Heaven above and the sea below,
And a little white whale on the go.
You're just a little white whale on the go.

In that third photo, li'l baby beluga looks a lot like me underwater--pale and flabby with lots of side chub...!

Although let me assure all present that I would never ever go swimming nekkid. That would just be tooooo horrifying. ;)

Belugas are so friendly-looking! I need to go to the aquarium soon (I haven't been in decades), and try singing back to the belugas for a while...

er . I just read some of the info. on the Shedd aquarium website. That's not Bella. Bella was born last year sometime to a different mother. This one doesn't have its gender known yet. just fyi .

Mama, too!

Oi Peeps -- just so you know, we are in fact aware that whales aren't exactly "Fishes". It's the closest category we have, though.

Carry on.

I just can't condone the captivity of whales and dolphins.

Another Angela
 |  Aug 20, 2007 at 08:14 PM

At least Baby Beluga ain't gonna git harpooned in the aquarium....

or eaten by a shark or an orca for that matter... like the one I saw on "The Blue Planet" last week.... all the Orcas drowned the baby blue whale... then just ate its jaw.... apparently, its the only bit they like.

zoos and aquariums serve a porpoise.............

Cute or what.....

I went to the shedd a few years ago on Wednesday morning. It was DEAD and the trainers were feeding the belugas.

Since no one was around, they let my hubby and I feed them and then we played catch with a beach ball. Possibly the coolest experience ever.

Apparently the belug approved of my feeding technique because it totally emptied its blow hole on me. The trainer said that it meant it liked me. I think the trainer was trying to keep me from being upset that I was soaked. I couldn't have cared less--I had numerous COXCU with a belug LIVE. Best memory eva!

SQUEEEEEEEEEEE!!! Smiling beluga baby! I want to snuggle heem!

Subhangi
 |  Aug 20, 2007 at 10:54 PM

And in the last photo you can see a bit of his umbilical cord!

According to the site, the side folds are from "being scrunched up inside Mom." Hee!
