White Whale Spotted
Rare albino humpback is sighted on his regular migration from Australia to Antarctica
The albino is believed to be Migaloo an all-white humpback first spotted in Australia in 1991. Migaloo is an Aboriginal word meaning white fella.
He was seen off Sydney last Thursday afternoon with Twitter reports of more sightings further up the east coast on Friday.
'What can I say? A once-in-a-lifetime opportunity seeing Migaloo the white whale swim past,' said Jonas Liebschner of Whale Watching Sydney who spotted Migaloo near the southern suburb of Cronulla.
'He was travelling in a competition pod of five adults... and a great deal of zigging and zagging.'
A competition pod is where several males compete for the attention of a single female.
Here's some footage of him captured in 2012.
