Beluga is one of two species of white whales. It is known by some as the "singing whale" because the wide range of noises it makes underwater can often be heard above the surface.

The beluga whale or white whale (Delphinapterus leucas) is an Arctic and sub-Arctic cetacean of the family Monodontidae. This marine mammal is commonly referred to as the beluga, melonhead, or sea canary due to its high-pitched twitter.
