Beluga whale habitat is very cold.

And they are only found in the Northern Hemisphere.

Beluga whales are some of the few whales in the world that inhabit cold polar regions and do not make any use of any warmer waters at all.

The are only found around the north pole, and not in Antarctica.

They follow the border of the ice as it grows during the autumn and decreases during the spring again, moving back closer to the poles.

They can also survive under ice, where they find air pockets in which to surface and breath.

They are ocean animals but they do visit inlets, and they can occasionally follow fish into the rivers - a few beluga remains have been found a fair distance from the ocean.
