Juno the beluga stole the show Wednesday at a press event with Connecticut Gov. Dannel Malloy.

The governor visited Mystic Aquarium to discuss travel in Connecticut ahead of Labor Day Weekend, touring the facility's Animal Rescue Clinic, Arctic Coast and Pacific Northwest exhibits before addressing the crowd in front of Juno's tank.

As the governor speaks, Juno appears behind him, swimming up to the governor and hovering over his shoulder. At one point, the beloved beluga presses his forehead to the glass, seeming to know he has an audience.

It's not the first time Juno has been playful with visitors or the camera.  He interacted with a mariachi band in 2011 and checked out the work of a sketch artist in 2012.

Watch Juno ham it up for the camera in the video above.
