If after reading Zoobooks Whales your kids are all excited about ceteceans, be sure to visit the Georgia Aquarium’s website. The Aquarium is home to some of the most beloved whales in the world, belugas. These animals’ name is derived from the Russian word for “white,” and their pale skin helps them to camoflage in their arctic home. Belugas are also known as the canaries of the sea because they communicate in chirps and whistles.
You can watch the Georgia Aquarium’s beluga family from their live webcam!
