Beluga whale development is not completely known, but gestation is known to last 14 months.

Beluga whale development is similar to that of most other mammals, but it is not completely known. There is either thought to be spontaneous ovulation with an extremely long gestation period or delayed implantation with a shorter gestation period, but it is unknown.

Beluga gestation is known to last about fourteen months.
