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.
