Awwwwww. I want one.
2006-07-19 09:55:36 AM

Now that is one CUTE little feller.

... cuter than any japanese animation.
2006-07-19 09:56:58 AM  
They always look like they're smiling... awwwww

/I bet they taste good too.
2006-07-19 10:00:23 AM  
this cheered me up.

Awwwwww. Makes me want to gunnite up the basement walls and get one.

/Hey, hon! I got a new pet! It's in the basement!

That's cuter than a doe-eyed orphan at a toy givaway.

Oh baby beluga I could just pinch it's cheeks and put a lolly in your blowhole. Kindly run away with me to the flowered glade, where we can jump rope and feed each other gumdrops. All I ask is that you shoot your delicious roe into my caviar-hole.

Dear god, it's the size of a watermelon.

Wait a minute you're a calf. And the ever-informative Aquarium staff has informed me that no, despite the copius brine that I have lovingly "milked" from your caviar wand. Caviar comes from sturgeon.

Cruel fate you are indeed a fickle mistress. Once again my love of cute has gone horribly awry!

As Grampy would say, that sumbiatch is cuter than a speckled pup.
2006-07-19 10:24:23 AM

Perhaps. But my love of blow-holes will not be chained by your sexual Catholicism.

Okay, I'll stop now.

I'm not really doing anything this afternoon, so I think I'll leave work early and go see the little guy. I haven't been to Shedd for about a year anyhow, and I'm overdue.

If anybody starts singing Raffi, I may just be forced to disembowel an entire orphanage.
2006-07-19 12:13:15 PM  
eeeee awwww!
/first pic, not second.

My roomie works at the Shedd as the head lab tech in the veterinary hospital there. He mentioned to me last night, "You may have noticed that I haven't been home these past few nights. That's because the beluga that has been showing all the signs of being pregnant successfully gave birth." In fact, I remember last year when one of the belugas had a stillbirth and my roommate was on call back then.

I'm glad for this good news and goshdurnit, but ain't that li'l bugger teh cute.

Art to Choke Hearts

Are you saying that baby monkeys aren't cute?!?? I dare you to do a GIS for "baby monkey" and tell me that shiat ain't cute.
2006-07-19 12:22:52 PM  
Did someone say ugly-ass Beluga?
2006-07-19 12:23:51 PM  
first pic, the mom looks like a simpson character.
2006-07-19 12:24:43 PM  

That was brilliant. You made me laugh out loud.

It's only a matter of time 'til Paris Hilton has to drive hers across the country.

Put a jimmyhat on thing, sheesh.
2006-07-19 12:34:14 PM  
As mentioned before, how is it that they always look like they're smiling? That adds to the instant maternal/paternal-instinct "aww cute!" factor more than anything, I think. Don't you wish you had that?
2006-07-19 12:34:42 PM  
I saw the birth on a morning new show. Does anyone know if the blood and the other stuff that came out of the mother cause any problems for the pool filters?
2006-07-19 12:35:15 PM  
Cute.... circuits.... overloaded....

Ugly-ass beluga whale born at Chicago's Shedd Aquarium.

I always wondered what they made this stuff out of...

See my previous comment.

I saw a bunch of beluga's at the atlanta aquarium a few months ago while I was visiting. They're absolutely amazing animals. Someone pointed to one of em and asked what the scars on her face were, and the guy from the aquarium said she was old, and those were wrinkles. Wow... whales get wrinkles like old people... who knew!

/octopus was still cooler though.

Slim Pickens: I don't believe you because I have some country crock, checked the nutrition label, and it has no iron.
2006-07-19 12:53:24 PM  

Right. Because we all know the label never lies.

mod - (post deleted: Dead animal pics are frowned upon... especially one with LOTS of blood)

In my defense, those dead whales weren't really too cute to begin with. Not like this little guy. Hey little guy! Don't ever leave the aquarium!
2006-07-19 01:07:29 PM  
Just think, in just a few short years it will be as ugly as shiat.

Anyone else get the ad for fresh salmon.

/knows whales are not fish
//just sayin.
2006-07-19 01:34:25 PM  
This one isn't smiling...
2006-07-19 01:35:58 PM  
Hey, I've got an idea. Let's give a bunch of posts about how cool it is to kill whales. I'm Joe Cool and I'm spectacular!
2006-07-19 01:36:19 PM  
Atlanta's aquarium has some. They really like people.

And they're delicious.
2006-07-19 01:36:44 PM

Whale veal!

Their calf's public unveiling is at least a month away.

As opposed to the privacy of posting it for millions of internet viewers ?

Isn't beluga what Tom Hanks ate in Big that he spit out?
