This is Nico. Nico is one of three Beluga whales at the Georgia Aquarium. He lives with two other female Belugas. Nico is a flirt and he loves to watch the people who visit the aquarium. On the afternoon I took this photo I was, surprisingly, the only person at the exhibit. Nico would swim back and forth across the front of the exhibit and right up to the second level where I stood. If I moved, he moved with me.

I suppose this flirtatious nature explains the frisky activities between he and one of the female Belugas. The aquarium is hoping there might be a baby Beluga coming soon!
