Well this is a not so wordless Wednesday. I will have to work on keeping quiet next week. I will go back" Tell Me Thursday" all about wordless Wednesday.
As promised here is the video of the Beluga whales. While at SeaWorld one can have a "Once-in-a-lifetime Animal Encounter" with the Beluga Interaction Program. There was one going on while we were at the Wild Arctic exhibit.

Here are some facts about Beluga Whales:
  • Average Length is 32 feet.
  • Their weight on average is 7 tons
  • They can live 75 to 100 years.
  • Love to eat Tuna, Harp Seal, they are Carnivorous but not known to attack humans.
  • Have six layers of razor sharp teeth.
  • Their habitat is in Coastal Greece and Scandinavia. In the winter their home is a coasts of Patagonia.
  • As far as mating; only once every twenty years with a 30 day gestation then the Piddlins are born, about seven or eight babies at one time.
  • There are more than 17 million Beluga whales at the present time. they are not an Endangered Animal.
  • Average IQ of 155
I found this statement on the site I used for the fact;
"Male Belugas tend to be solitary, while females raise their young and socialize in large groups called "fronds." Each frond has a leader, or "mermistress," and she is the only female who nurses all of the young in each frond. A mermistress also disciplines the young belugas, often eating those that are disobedient."
How's that for discipline?

  14. Wow! I love Belugas! When I was a kid we learned a song about them. "Baby Beluga in the deep blue sea. Swims so wild and he swims so free. The heavens above and the sea below and the little white whale on the go! Baby Beluga ohhh Baby Beluga is the water warm? Is your mama home with you sooo happy." There is moe to the song, Lol but I might be making you bored! Happy WW!
