MYSTIC, Conn. — Connecticut Gov. Dannel P. Malloy found himself upstaged by a beluga whale during a tourism news conference Wednesday at the Mystic Aquarium.

Malloy was standing in front of the Alaskan Coast exhibit touting an increase in summer tourism in Connecticut when a whale named Juno swam to the glass to watch.

The whale hovered over the governor's shoulder and pressed its head to the glass as photographers recorded its antics. The whale became an Internet sensation in 2011 after a video surfaced of it interacting with a mariachi band playing for a wedding at the aquarium.

Belugas are social animals and communicate using assorted whistles and clicking sounds.
