The word Beluga comes from the Russian word "bielo" meaning white. However, these white whales are actually born dark grey and it can take up to eight years before they turn completely white. The vertebrae in a Beluga’s neck is not fused together, giving it the unusual ability to turn its head up, down and side-to-side. Interestingly, Beluga whales are also known to make friends just like humans do. As well as spending time with their close relatives, Beluga whales also frequently associate with individuals they have no relation to.
