baby beluga

Anybody else familiar with the Baby Beluga song by Raffi? We listened to the tape over and over in the car when I was a kid. I haven't heard that song in years, but it was definitely playing through my mind when we saw the new baby beluga whale at Sea World.

Up for a breath of air.

I never knew that baby beluga whales are actually gray, not white like their adult counterparts. Apparently, Raffi was also not aware of this, as some of his lyrics are: "Baby beluga in the deep blue sea; swim so wild, and you swim so free. Heaven above and the sea below, and a little white whale on the go!" 
I guess you learn something new everyday.
