You probably get the idea by now from all my crochet designs that I’m an animal lover. This post isn’t crochet related, but it’s so lovely I had to share it.
A baby beluga whale has been born at the Vancouver Aquarium and the aquarium have installed a webcam pointed at the tank, so you can see the adorable sight of the mother beluga, Qila, and her baby swimming through the tank!
I’ve embedded the video feed below, but if it doesn’t work or you’d like more info, see the Vancouver Aquarium Beluga Cam.
UPDATED: The feed was slowing my site down to a crawl (oops!) so please click through to see the Vancouver Aquarium Beluga Cam. It’s worth a click!
Isn’t that a wonderful sight?!
If you see an adult beluga swimming past with no baby, don’t worry – that’s probably baby’s grandmother, Aurora. Keep watching, and Qila and her baby will come past shortly. (Oh, and Vancouver is on Pacific Time, so if the webcam is dark when you read this, it’s probably night time for the belugas, so please remember to take another look tomorrow – I promise it’s worth it!)
And don’t they look exactly like my AquaAmi Beluga Whales come to life? I’ve never had the opportunity to see a beluga whale in real life so this webcam is the next best thing for me. Thanks to the Vancouver Aquarium for making it possible for us to catch a rare glimpse of a baby beluga swimming with her mummy!
