Dancing Whale Cheers on Newlyweds (Video’s)

Whales cheer on the Bride and Groom during wedding vows.
This video was taken in 2007.

In 2011 we have another Wedding, but this time the Whale is enjoying the music and seems to be fasinated by the music.

But in fact.
But Mystic Aquarium senior trainer Kelly O’Neil tells the New Haven Register that Juno, the 550-kilogram beluga on the video, has been trained to bob in response to certain arm movements, and was apparently responding to the movements of the band’s guitar player. Perth Now.

      Hi souldipper,
      Oh yes they are very intelligent, I totally agree, I really had to laugh when the whale starting to spin just when the couple started their wedding vows, the whale couldn’t have timed it better.πŸ™‚

    Well, most marine mammals are sensitive to sound … that’s why the whale-watching boats don’t use sonar. And, they’re naturally curious, and want to show off … maybe it wanted to divert attention from the bride to itself. As to the second one, I’d suggest it just wanted to see what was going on.

      Hi travelrat,
      It certainly did divert attention to itself, and what a way to become the center of attention, the Ahhhh’s in the video tells me the whale achieved this.πŸ˜€

    Entertaining clip!! Sometimes we make an anthropocentric mistake in judging animal behavior. Animal intelligence at times can be beyond human intelligence comprehension.

    Hi, Mags! I’m here from Susie Lindaus Blogaversary party.πŸ™‚ The Beluga whale became my daughters’ fave when we went to the Sea World in San Diego, CA last year. I love how they seem to smile all the time.
