Allya, a captive Beluga whale that blows bubble-rings

Meet Allya, a Beluga whale (Delphinapterus leucas) who lives at an aquarium in western Japan. Like the dolphins at Orlando's Sea World, Allya has learned to blow bubble rings.

The YouTube blurb for this video notes:
Allya clearly loves interacting with her audience. She aims the bubbles at spectators as they peer in through the glass.
To learn more about this species, visit the Beluga Whale Fact Sheet on Web site of the American Cetacean Society.
