Behold a beluga whale mimicking human speech

0

A Beluga whale living in a conservation centre in San Diego learned to mimic the human voice to the extent that it fooled an underwater diver, according to researchers. Actually, I think I know that guy it is mimicking ! :-) See for instance ITV

It seems likely that NOC’s close association with humans played a role in how often he employed his human voice, as well as in its quality.
