Whalecoming The Weekend With Some Whale Memes

Whales, like elephants, are true gentle giants. In the water, we would prefer not to encounter them, but in memes? Whale, whale, whale... someone's so insanely adorable. Really, whale memes would be welcome any day, but especially on National Shamu the Whale Day. We thought it would be the perfect timing to showcase some of our favorite whale memes.

They're smooth, they purse their lips adorably, and they always look ever so slightly confused. Truly, it is amazing that these are some of the fiercest, most dangerous animals of the sea. It takes true whalepower to get through the last day of the workweek, so charge up on these whaletastic memes.

Congratulations to the mother, 20-year-old Whisper! 

The adorable calf was born May 17th, weighing 174 pounds and measured out to be 5 feet and 4 inches long! 

After a long labor, both mother and baby are resting and bonding. The Georgia Aquarium, in Atlanta, is said to be keeping a close watch on the lovely pair. 

Unfortunately, the aquarium still remains closed due tot he virus but we're very excited for them and already in love with their newest addition to their beluga family!

Wellington The Penguin Meets Beluga Whales

If you guys aren't following @shedd_aquarium on Twitter, you're definitely missing out on some under the sea magic! 

The staff are currently letting the penguins roam the empty aquarium and documenting their adventures!

And on March 31st, Wellington the Penguin meet beluga whales -- for the very first time! And the belugas are northern hemisphere animals, so they likely have never seen a penguin either!

Which explains the second belugas curiosity as it presses its head against the glass for a better look!

Science Writer Brings The True (And Tragic) Story Behind The Viral Beluga Whale Seen Playing "Fetch"

A clip first shared on November 7 that shows South African rugby fans playing "fetch" with a beluga whale was quick to capture the hearts of many, but it also raised questions and speculation about the mammal and its nature. Science writer @ferrisjabr shared some additional context and background, arguing that the whale is "likely Hvaldimir, a once captive whale who may have escaped a Russian military program."
