Mozart the Beluga by BlackGryph0n Mozart the Beluga by BlackGryph0n
Went the to the Georga Aquarium while on leave this weekend and spent a few hours with the belugas of which there were four. This is Mozart. (My favorite)
He is 16ft (4.8M) long and weighs almost 2,700lbs! (1,224kg)
Pretty light for a beluga of his size, but the water in his aquarium is relativity warm (58deg F./14.4c.) so he doesn't need all that blubber.

Being the oldest of the belugas, Mozart knew a wide range of behaviors and was very outgoing! Like most whales, he loved to have his tongue rubbed and seemed to enjoy that more than the fish! :P

This is only my second encounter with belugas, but both encounters were very special and and left a memorable impression. This will not be the last time I swim with these awesome animals.

(More animal encounter Pictures in this gallery folder: [link] )

P.S. Rainbowlicious is on it's way! A week at the most! I promise!
