Juneau Gets His Kicks

What a minute, I know that whale!  I used to run back and forth across his underwater panels while Juneau was still at SeaWorld Orlando.  What a sweetheart.  Never thought to bring my trumpet in to play him a tune.

And yes, the sillier you think you are being, the more entertaining you are to a marine mammal.  In the field we call this “environmental enrichment”, when we literally play to break up a zoo animals’ day.

As highly acoustic animals, it makes sense that a beluga would respond to this quirky display.  Never mind the dancing and enormous sombreros.
