The Daily Mail published these photos of a beluga whale blowing bubbles and waving to the camera at Kamogawa Sea World, east of Tokyo.

Beluga whales, also known as white whales, are highly social mammals found in the Arctic Ocean, according to National Geographic. They communicate using "clicks, whistles and clangs" and live in small groups called pods.

Of course, these photos aren't the only documented instance of beluga whales showing off. There are several YouTube videos of white whales performing tricks and hamming it up.
