The beluga whale (Delphinapterus leucas) or white whale is an Arctic and sub-Arctic cetacean. It is one of two members of the family Monodontidae, along with the narwhal, and the only member of the genus Delphinapterus. This marine mammal is commonly referred to simply as the melonhead, beluga or sea canary due to its high-pitched twitter.
In Zoo Tycoon
The Beluga Whale is an adoptable animal in Zoo Tycoon: Marine Mania and Zoo Tycoon 2: Marine Mania. It is easily distinguished by its white colouration and lack of a dorsal fin. The Beluga is closely related to the Narwhal, and the two can easily live with each other in the same tank, although this may cause problems in Zoo Tycoon: Marine Mania due to their biome preferences differing slightly. The Beluga solely inhabits cold waters such as those found around Canada and Iceland and is often known as "The Canary of the Sea" due to its songs, which resemble those of a bird.
