"When we come out on land, temperatures can get down to -100C or -200C and things will instantly freeze, so we can barely move."

-200 degrees Celsius?

Bullsh*t.

Not bull. The author just didn't mention that these are Belugas from Neptune.

Damn you, Daily Mail! They always leave out these interesting facts.

"And it's definitely a case of choosing the short straw for one volunteer who gets to stay above ground in -300C winds, making sure the ice hole doesn't freeze over and trap the group."

I'm pretty sure that breaks the laws of physics. Guess they are Beulgas from Neptune AND an alternate version of reality.

I had a bad case of the curious belugas, but my doc put me on antibiotics. Cleared it right up

So how much caviar can you make out of one beluga....?

Looks like you'd probably get a couple of thousand cans of that fishy crap out of one of those things.

Good on crackers.

Only two eggs a year but they weigh twelve pounds each.

You're either really confused about biology or an exceptionally terrible chef.

I like the "R U NOMZ?" picture.

Baby beluga in the deep blue sea,
Swim so wild and you swim so free.
Heaven above and the sea below,
And a little white whale on the go.

Baby beluga, baby beluga,
Is the water warm? Is your mama home,
With you so happy?

Way down yonder where the dolphins play,
Where you dive and splash all day,
Waves roll in and the waves roll out.
See the water squirting out of your spout.

Baby beluga, oh, baby beluga,
Sing your little song, sing for all your friends.
We like to hear you.

When it's dark, you're home and fed.
Curled up snug in your waterbed.
Moon is shining and the stars are out.
Good night, little whale, good night.

Baby beluga, oh, baby beluga,
With tomorrow's sun, another day's begun.
You'll soon be waking.

Baby beluga in the deep blue sea,
Swim so wild and you swim so free.
Heaven above and the sea below,
And a little white whale on the go.
You're just a little white whale on the go.

/Bananaphone!

I like watching the ones at the Fish Tank in downtown Atlanta. They way they twist and turn in the water really showsoff their form. Just a gorgous animal that is hypnotic to watch.

Before each dive the team have to create holes in the three-foot-deep ice using a hand saw, just to get through to the sea below.

How is it that whales are living in a completely ice-over bay? Are these whales with gills?

What you don't see here are the Japanese and Norwegian whaling "research" vessels lurking just out of camera range...

Did you read the paper today the Eskimo, who wear mukluks, will sometime eat the blubber from the belugas.

No word if they like bulbous bouffants.

heap: and here we see the beluga in its natural habitat, ordering a meal at a neptunian taco stand.

Apparently Neptunian taco stands are equipped with Stargates.

What kind of a god would be such a dick to evolve fish into being so streamlined after seeing that whale mouth.

With. It also should be noted that it's not that bad, because at least it's a dry cold.
