A Mariachi Band Serenades a Beluga Whale
by Mark Lukach
Juno, a beluga whale at the Mystic Acquarium in Connecticut, is a big fan of music. A mariachi band was performing at the aquarium for a wedding, and Juno swam to the viewing area to check out what the musicians were up to. As you can see in the video, he is clearly engaged with the musicians, and even dances along with their movements.
Kelly O’Neill, a trainer at the aquarium, told Discovery News that, “Juno is extremely playful, so the mariachi band must have piqued his curiosity.”
This is probably the greatest use of a mariachi band that I’ve seen since No Country For Old Men.
