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!

Corgis Of The Ocean: Beluga Whales Are Our New Obsession

For anyone who is not familiar yet with this cutie pie, meet the Beluga Whale! The beluga, or white whale, is one of the smallest species of whale. Their distinctive color and prominent foreheads make them easily identifiable. They are the only aquatic mammals of this color. They are found in the Arctic and sub-Arctic regions and that's the reason why their physiological and anatomical characteristics are different from other marine mammals. For instance, they don't have a dorsal fin, which is present in other cetaceans. Once you will see these adorable photos, you will be obsessed too.

Why are these Beluga Whales singing you ask? They're celebrating their victory over the Dolphins in last week's Squee Spree Versus. So let's all sing and squee with them!
