While amused zoo visitors watched, the make creature pretended to leave but returns immediately appearing to try to startle the woman in front.

It lunged at the woman while open it’s mouth as if to say ‘what are you looking at?’

The whale lingered in front of the viewing glass for almost a minute to entertain the visitors before swimming off on the other side of the aquarium.

The woman in the video Huang Chunchun, whose friend recorded her, said it was one of the most memorable encounters she had with a wildlife in the zoo.

She said: ‘I have been to Pingtung Sea Life Museum multiple times before but this was the most memorable encounter I had with a wildlife.

‘This whale played with me for quite some time. I don’t how it learned to do that. Everyone was happy to watch it play with me.’
