Animal Spotlight: Beluga whales
Mystic Aquarium's Arctic
Coast exhibit is one of the largest outdoor beluga
whale exhibits in North America! Contoured to mimic the beluga's
natural habitat in the arctic and sub-arctic, the water temperature
is maintained at approximately 55 degrees in the summer and cooled
naturally during the winter.
Belugas are covered in blubber which helps keep them warm in their
cold habitat. During the winter months, their daily fish intake
increases to help maintain that thick blubber layer. Our whales can
eat anywhere between 50 - 80 pounds of restaurant-quality herring,
capelin, mackerel, squid and sardine per day.
Take advantage of heat from the sun! Open curtains on
your south-facing windows during the day so the sunlight can
naturally heat your home. Then close them at night to reduce the
chill you may feel from cold windows. Also consider investing in
thermal curtains which will help with heating and cooling costs
throughout the year.
