Listen to the whale trying to talk.

Scientists in California have recorded a whale making noises that sound like someone talking.

Other animals like parrots have learnt how to talk but it's the first time a whale has been heard trying to mimic human speech.

This male Beluga whale made human-like sounds according to scientists.

Analysis of the sounds showed that they were much deeper than the calls whales normally use.

Have a listen and see what you think. Pretty good, but what is he saying?
