Beluga whales are affectionately known as sea canaries for their song-like vocalizations, and their name is the Russian word for "white."
They are sociable animals that live, hunt, and migrate together in pods, ranging from a few individuals to hundreds of whales. However, they are naturally reticent to interact with humans, although some solitary belugas are known to approach boats.
Once such beluga that's believed to live in Norwegian waters is so comfortable among humans that it played fetch with a rugby ball.
