This orca, nicknamed “Iceberg”, is part of a pod that is native to the North Pacific off the coast of Russia. Scientists don’t know if it’s a true albino, as the only other known white orca suffered from a deadly disease that made it lack pigment. This one seems healthy, and totally unique.
It was a one-time sighting, and they hope to find this social pod again on their next outing to find out more about this beautiful whale. Those other orcas better not make fun of him for being so pale.
Just goes to show you the amazing discoveries that still await us in our oceans.
