Man plays bagpipes for whale with magical results

It just can’t get enough of those Scottish sounds.

THE SOUND OF bagpipes may not be music to everyone’s ears but there’s at least one creature on the planet that friggin’ loves it.

This beluga whale just couldn’t keep away from a man playing bagpipes in a kilt near its tank at Mystic Aquarium, Connecticut.

Redditor cjleigh said the bagpiper in question was his cousin and couldn’t resist posting the video on the site. And with good reason too. Just look at this little whale go.

The mammal was absolutely loving the music, and even seemed to bop along at one point.

You could even go as far as to say it was having a whale of a time.

This isn’t the first time a whale at the aquarium has been mesmerised by music. A mariachi band put on quite the show for one of the mammals two years ago.
