MYSTIC, Conn. – Michelle Cotton, her son and a few friends had an entertaining experience with a beluga whale at Mystic Aquarium in Connecticut.

Juno is the whale that children can be seen playing with in the video, and it looks like he decided to have a turn for himself.

The aquarium said the young whale was not showing aggression and this is a form of play for the creature, reported WTKR.

Juno is a viral video star of sorts. He was also the whale featured in the mariachi band video that has been watched over three million times.

Cotton recently posted the video to America’s Funniest Videos Facebook Page and shared the story behind the clip:

“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.

Cotton said she posted the video on the aquarium’s Facebook page last year, but she never heard anything. About a week ago, someone found the video and shared it on Facebook.
