The baby beluga whale swims with her surrogate mom, Allua.

What a difference a few months make when it comes to a baby beluga whale. She now tips the scales at 215 pounds and is on exhibit at SeaWorld.

She made her debut Friday.

SeaWorld officials say she's playful and curious and enjoying her surroundings at the park's Wild Arctic exhibit.

Born June 23, she was abandoned by her mother. As luck would have it another female, Allua, took over mothering duties.

She has since thrived. She's been exploring the exhibit with Allua and Ferdinand, a male beluga whale
