    Why Beluga Whales Should Be Your New Favorite Mammal

    Beluga whales, the corgis of the ocean.

    Beluga whales are quite possibly the ocean's most adorable mammal.

    They belong to the same family as narwhals, which is pretty rad.

    And like to travel in big groups.

    Which means they're super friendly.

    Seriously look how happy they are!

    They're very creative...

    ...athletic...

    ...and love music.
