CONNECTICUT — A woman took her son and a few friends to Mystic Aquarium in Connecticut where they had an up-close interaction with a Beluga Whale named Juno.

The aquarium said the young whale was not showing aggression. Officials said this is a form of play for the creature.

Cotton recently posted the video to America’s Funniest Videos Facebook Page and shared the story behind the 2013 video:

“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.

However, this is not Juno’s first viral video. He was also the whale featured in the mariachi band video that has been watched over 3 million times.
