Beluga Whales Stop In Their Watery Tracks To Listen To Musician Playing The Bagpipes

Juno, Naluark and Kela, three of four Beluga whales at the Mystic Aquarium in Mystic, Connecticut, stop in their watery tracks to listen to musician Tom Leigh play the Scottish smallpipes, a smaller version of the bagpipes.

Perhaps this answers the question as to whether or not animals enjoy music, particularly Beluga whales. In 2011, Los Trovadores de America, a Connecticut Mariachi band, serenaded Juno while they were performing at the Mystic Aquarium for a wedding.

Additionally, reddit user undido did a credible job emulating how the music might have sounded to the whales .
