    I Just Found Out What A Beluga Whale Is And I'm OBSESSED

    Be still, my beating heart.

    Hello, friends. I just saw a photo of a beluga whale for the first time, and I am now well and truly OBSESSED.

    I honestly don't understand how something so bloody cute can exist.

    I cannot handle this level of cuteness. 😍😍😍

    And would you look at this white QUEEN of the Arctic Circle?!

    She looks so regal and poised. Such a lady!

    Their little heads are just so lumpy and cute.

    And those big bumps on their head? Oh, yep, they have names. They're called β€” wait for it β€” melons. MELONS!!!

    They also move their necks in the sassiest of ways, and IT IS BLOODY ADORABLE.

    The vertebrae in their necks aren't fused together, so they can almost move their heads like humans do.

    Don't get me started on BELUGA BABIES!!

    This little cub is so, so smol and so, so hungry. 😍

    Or how HILARIOUS their long bodies are.

    Or how chubby they look when they come up for air.

    I want to hug and squeeze this guy sooo badly.

    They're also one of the only whales that can SWIM BACKWARDS!

    Look at him go! I am so proud.

    Which means they can fool around like this:

    I could definitely play peak-a-boo with these guys all day.

    They also have teeth, which are pretty damn ADORABLE...

    I just love their faces so much.

    ...and give them other special skills, like catching basketballs.

    So talented.

    They are also very social and LOVE to make friends.

    And they spend their days hunting, talking, maxing, and relaxing.

    This guy is just out here living his BEST whale life.

    So in conclusion, beluga whales are the best and I want to love and care for them with every fibre of my being.
