Adorable Beluga Whale Trying To Befriend A Seagull

The beluga whale believed to be a Russian spy has found a new confidante by playing with a seagull swimming along the water’s surface.

Jan-Olaf Johansen was working on a ship in Hammerfest harbor, Norway, on September 2 when he spotted the white whale under the water near him.

Watching closely, the 49-year-old chief officer watched on amazed as the whale – named Hvaldimir following its surreal rise to fame earlier in 2019 when it was believed to have been being used as a spy by the Russian navy in Norwegian waters – glided gracefully up to the surface, seemingly stalking a bird swimming on the surface.

Jan-Olaf continued to film as the beluga nudged the bird to get its attention before chasing after its new friend playfully for a good few minutes.
