Shedd Aquarium’s baby beluga Kimalu turns 1

The Shedd Aquarium is celebrating a big milestone Tuesday:  WGN’s favorite baby beluga whale turns 1 year old.

You voted for her name, and it was revealed live on the WGN News at Five.

Now little Kimalu isn’t so little anymore — she weighs about 325 pounds and is 6’6″ in length.

She got her first tooth last month and loves having her gums rubbed.

Shedd staffers tell WGN Kimalu is now eating fish, and especially likes herring.

And she’s getting pretty brave, swimming very close to guests at the Shedd.
