Sea Creature Fun Facts: Beluga Whale
Belugas are white whales that migrate within the region of the Arctic Ocean. --In the summer they migrate north and in the winter they migrate south away from the north pole to avoid getting trapped by forming ice. --Beluga calves are born dark gray and become darker after the first month. Thereafter they gradually become paler and as adults they are completely white.
