BELUGA BOOGIE: Whales Dig Naked Lady?

22 Nov

Swimming with beluga whales

We’ve already discussed how beluga whales like to groove to mariachi music, so I’m not too surprised to learn that they might also enjoy swimming with naked ladies. The lady in question here is Natalia Avseenko, a yoga expert capable of free-diving for extended periods in sub-zero water temperatures. The goal of this exercise is to “tame” the whales.

The venue is the Utrish Dolphinarium in northwest Russia, an entirely suspect organization that apparently domesticates wild cetaceans for export.

If you ask me, these whales don’t seem to be enjoying Natalia as much as that other whale enjoyed the mariachi music. I have to say, I’m also wondering about the terms of Natalia’s employment.
