The Beluga Whale also called The White Whale can mostly be found in Artic waters and become their brilliant white color around 5 yrs. of age. They are considered a smallish whale between 13-20' long and live 35-50 yrs. in the wild. They should never be kept in captivity.... it is inhumane and unjust. All whales should have the roam of the ocean!
Believe it or not, vultures are endangered in some parts of the world. In India and Nepal, vulture populations have declined dramatically in the past ten or 15 years, possibly due to drugs used by vets. When the vultures eat dead animals that have been treated with certain drugs, it kills them too.
