This Beluga Took A Break From Doing Whale Stuff To Play Fetch With Rugby Players

While we may never know what it’s like to be a beluga whale (barring some truly horrific scientific advancements), it’s nice to see what beluga whales would be like if they were human.

This beluga whale—caught on video by some South African rugby players boating near the Arctic—can not only go capture a ball in its jaws, but return it for a little more fun.

The whale probably doesn’t know the rules of rugby (who does?) but he’s got a fin up on the competition if they ever decide to launch an amphibious version of the sport.
