Did you know that “beluga” actually means “the white one” in Russian? That’s
because when these whales blow out their birthday candles at age eight, they’ll officially have turned all white. Most Belugas here in Canada call the St. Lawrence River home, but sadly, their home isn’t as clean as we’d like it to be, and Belugas can be harmed with chemicals that are found in the water and even noise from ships and other human activity. Belugas have fairly small pods with between two and 10 whales, and they feed together in deep waters. In fact, they sometimes can’t see very much when they’re hunting for their prey, because when you go deeper than 100 metres in the ocean, it’s dark. So dark that Belugas have to use echolocation to find fish to eat. Echo what?!! Echolocation is something that animals like bats and Belugas use to find things in the dark. They’ll make clicking sounds and that sound will bounce off of fish — that gives them an idea of where the fish are and helps them to hunt.
