Beluga Whale Plays Fetch with Rugby Fans


A group of South African rugby fans can be seen throwing the ball out into the ocean.

South Africa won their third Rugby World Cup title last week, after stunning England 32-12 in the final at Yokohama Stadium in Japan.

Only issue is, the organisers of the Rugby World Cup aren't allowing beluga whales to take part.

Beluga whales are said to be very intelligent animals and, as seen in the video, very playful.

A video of the encounter was posted on Facebook by Alon Kowen saying: "Beluga Whale celebrating the Springboks victory somewhere close to the South Pole!"

That's right, one of the South Pole's marine mammals, which you may remember from a beloved children's song by Raffi, showed off its skill with the ball in a video posted online earlier this week.

According to the National Geographic, beluga whales are highly social animals who employ a diversified language of clicks, whistles, and clangs to communicate. They also like to play with the objects they find in the water.
