White killer whale adult spotted for first time in wild



Scientists have made what they believe to be the first sighting of an adult white orca, or killer whale.

The adult male, which they have nicknamed Iceberg, was spotted off the coast of Kamchatka in eastern Russia.

It appears to be healthy and leading a normal life in its pod.

Wow, wish they were able to get a better picture.
Totally beautiful.

I hope no one tries to hunt him or her now.

S & F. Great find! They are absolutely magnificent animals. I believe our understanding of the intelligence and communication skills among whales is only just dipping below the surface currently (pardon the pun) and Orcas seem to be about as bright as they come. I have had the good fortune to see them in the wild in NZ and it was quite literally a breath taking experience...

wow

have they ruled out his amelanistic trait as being from hybridization?, ie the arctic beluga which is normally white and perhaps a dominant pheno when/if hybridized with another specie.
