Watch this adorable beluga whale play fetch with a football

Many South Africans are still celebrating following the Boks' Rugby World Cup win against England last weekend in Japan.

There was a ruck-us in the Antarctic Ocean when a boatload of South African rugby fans encountered a friendly beluga whale.

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

"Beluga Whale celebrating the Springboks victory somewhere close to the South Pole", Kowen wrote in the caption to the Facebook post. They were reportedly using an official 2019 Rugby World Cup ball for this unusual game.

The new feature will allow a business to add information like price, description and product code for each item in its catalogue. Other than that, businesses are also able to display different types of products and services that they offer on a single page.


As you can see in the video, it happily goes after the ball and returns it to the crew before tossing it out again for another go. Twitter users have showered the video with love in the form of comments full of amazement and awe.

Beluga whales are highly sociable and have shown curiosity towards humans in the past.

In fact, ten years ago, a captive beluga whale once rescued a distressed participant of a free diving competition by pushing her to the surface.
