    Juno, a 10-year-old beluga whale, takes an interest in art at Mystic Aquarium.

    A beluga whale at Mystic Aquarium seems to have an eye for the arts.

    A video posted on YouTube shows the Juno, a 10-year-old beluga appear to glance through the glass of his tank and focus on a sketch pad as artist Scott Fischer shows off his work. The beluga even appears to follow the page turns as Fischer flips through the pad.

    The video was taken on Aug. 18 and posted on YouTube.  It has since had more than 320,000 views.

    This is not the first time Juno has enjoyed an interaction with the outside world. He is the same whale that seemed to enjoy the music of a mariachi band that played at the aquarium for a wedding. The video of that encounter was posted on YouTube last summer.

    Fischer is a well-known artist who has done work for Disney, Simon and Schuster, Sony, Marvel, Microsoft and more.
