Why say much about belugas when Rafi does it so much better? We'll let him kick off Monday's Daily Cuteness Challenge.

What Rafi doesn't mention, is that the beluga is under siege. The cute cetacean is considered "near threatened" by the International Union for Conservation of Nature. In fact, one subpopulation, located in the Cook Inlet in Alaska, is diminishing so quickly that it is considered critically endangered.
