A mother in Connecticut captured an encounter between her son and a playful Beluga whale at the Mystic Aquarium.

Michelle Cotton posted the video on America’s Funniest Videos Facebook Page along with the following description.

“I met a friend on a support group on Facebook for our kids mutual rare genetic disorder. We met up so the kids could get to know someone else with the same horrible disorder. When we went to the aquarium that day, the beluga whale, I think his name was Juno, teased our kids,” she wrote.

In her post, Cotton mentioned that while she videotaped the scene last year, she only posted it on YouTube on Wednesday.

According to the aquarium, the young whale named, Juno, was displaying a form of play, not aggression, reported.
