Baby beluga born at Vancouver Aquarium

June 7, 2009 | 5:37 PM PT

 

Aurora, the 20-year-old beluga grandmother at Vancouver Aquarium, gave birth to a calf Sunday afternoon.

Staff called it a thrilling event for the aquarium and although they couldn't conclusively comment on the calf's gender, they said it appears to be a female.

Visitors and volunteers gathered around the beluga habitat to watch the birth and, after a few false starts, the baby emerged to cheers from the crowd.

Sharon Newman has been haunting the aquarium since Aurora was put under 24-hour surveillance to monitor her condition.
