Spotted – rare gray whale that is white

A rare sighting of what is thought to be an albino gray whale has been recorded off Baja California, Mexico.

Over 20,000 gray whales migrate to Baja California each winter to give birth and nurse their young after feeding during the summer in Arctic waters, but there have only ever been around four ‘albino’ gray whales recorded in the world.

This particular white whale had been spotted a few years previously in the same area but appeared again, this time travelling with her young calf. The calf, however, is not white.
