Everyday, more and more evidence is found showing that animals are much more intelligent than we give them credit for.

Be it elephants painting self portraits, or orangutans using iPads to communicate, the creatures of the animal kingdom are constantly showing us how smart they really are. 

Dolphins and their whale cousins have long time been considered intelligent, and this latest amazing video only adds another layer of mystery surrounding the mammal ocean dwellers.

While visiting the Mystic Aquarium, artist Scott M Fischer decided to see what would happen if he showed one of the beluga whales, Juno, his sketchbook.

The results are extraordinary. Video of the encounter went viral over the weekend, and currently stands with over 300,000 views
