Beluga Whale Plays Fetch With Rugby World Cup Ball in Incredible Video

SEATTLE (TMZ) — Ever seen a Beluga whale play fetch in the open seas before??? Now ya have … ’cause the Seattle Seawolves just posted video of the adorable mammal retrieving a rugby ball from deep in the ocean — and it’s incredible!!

Great to see a fellow marine mammal enjoying a bit of catch-pass with one of the @RugbyWorldCup balls! The #Beluga seems to prefer the offload instead of the spin pass.

The 74 seconds of awesome begins with some people on a boat pulling a ball out of the Beluga’s mouth … and then they hurl the sphere about 20 yards away.

That’s when the whale swims out and grabs it … AND THEN BRINGS IT BACK TO THE BOAT!!! It’s seriously amazing.

Unclear why the guys decided to have the impromptu game of catch … but the Seawolves were stoked to post the footage Thursday.

“Great to see a fellow marine mammal enjoying a bit of catch-pass with one of the @RugbyWorldCup balls!” the team wrote. “The #Beluga seems to prefer the offload instead of the spin pass.”

FYI, the Seawolves’ season starts in a few months — which means there’s definitely enough time to make a nickname change to the Belugas …

Just sayin’.
