Beluga Whale Loves to Paint
By Kristen Seymour
Your cat's talent might be sensing when you're about to open a tuna can. Or maybe your dog will roll over on command. But do any of your pets paint? No? Then they've got nothing on Xiao Qiang, a 7-year-old beluga whale at Polar Ocean World in Shandong, China, who's been gaining attention for his watercolors.
The photo above shows a boat in the ocean, something that has proven to be one of Xiao Qiang's favorite artistic subjects.
What do you think, Paw Nation readers? Is this an adorable way to make the public aware of how intelligent these creatures truly are? Or do you want Xiao Qiang to put down the brush and return to swimming in the ocean?
