— -- Whale, that's one way to cool down!

Visitors at Hakkeijima Sea Paradise aquarium in Yokohama, Japan, a suburb of Tokyo, got some unexpected relief from sweltering heat when a mischievous beluga whale popped out of the water and hosed down the crowd with water from its mouth.

Temperatures climbed over 93 degrees Fahrenheit on Monday, which was one day after the end of the rainy season in Tokyo.

The playful arctic whale's surprise splash was caught on camera, and the fun photo has been making rounds on social media, where many are impressed by what looks like abs on the beluga's abdomen.
