The story of Noc, the talking whale

This story, by Charles Siebert for Smithsonian magazine, is about a Beluga whale that apparently taught himself to mimic human speech after he was captured in the Arctic and was being trained in California to recover lost test torpedoes in the arctic for the U.S. Navy. Very interesting!

Here is Noc (pronounced no see).
