The whale species just got a whole lot cooler.

A series of GIFs recently hit the Web that shows whales exhaling rainbows — literally. It’s like something out of a sci-fi movie, but it’s not.

It’s reality. According to The Dodo, no other animal in the world can produce a rainbow by exhaling. That’s what makes whales so special.

When whales surface to breathe, air passes in and out of their blowholes like an explosion, sending up tall clouds of vapor along with it.

Once the whales blow out the vapor, rainbows form and magic is made. Check out the GIFs below. They’re awesome!
