This Beluga Is a Whale of an Art Lover
Scott M. Fischer is a talented artist with many fans of his work. But the illustrator will never have a bigger fan than Juno, a beluga whale who lives at the Mystic Aquarium in Connecticut.
During Fischer’s visit to Mystic he made friends with Juno, who had come up to the glass. When he started to show the 2,000 pound mammal his sketchbook Juno immediately became interested, peering down at the drawings.
As Fischer flipped through the pages of the book, Juno’s eyes followed the images. He’s a whale of an art lover alright.
In fact, this isn’t the first instance of a beluga enjoying a bit of culture. Last year a recording of a whale at the same aquarium dancing along to a Mariachi band went viral.
You can see some of Fischer’s drawings here. It’s pretty good stuff, so it’s not that surprising his talents have transcended the animal kingdom.
