Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Sunday, November 05, 2017

Belugas are vocal creatures that can speak in squeaks, squawks, cackles and clicks. They can even imitate the animals and people around them. According to Discovery Magazine, one beluga even started "speaking dolphin" after she moved into a tank with no other animals but bottlenose dolphins. The four-year-old captive animal had grown up around other beluga whales, but moved to the Koktebel Dolphinarium in Crimea in 2013. There, she had no other belugas to talk to, only dolphins.

Beluga whales and bottlenose dolphins are related -- they are both cetaceans, meaning they are in the whale family with orcas and narwhals. They are highly intelligent, social and vocal. But they typically live with their own kind, make their own calls and have their own specific, cultural behaviors.
