According to the Daily Mail U.K., a maritime engineer spotted a white humpback whale swimming amongst a pod of regular-hued humpbacks in the waters off Norway. This one is Migaloo and he is not albino, but leucistic, as are the other white humpbacks recently spotted. In fact, one of them is believed to be the offspring of Migaloo.

White lions are leucistic. Their eye color ranges from the normal hazel or golden color to blue-gray or green-gray. Paw pads and lips are pigmented. The paler the lion the less pigment it possesses. As a result “white” lions range from blonde to near white. The males have pale manes and tail tufts.

Leucistic dolphin. I won't call this one albino since its cream coloring suggests it is producing some melanin (pheomelanin?), and likely not producing the eumelanin needed for the darker coloring of its species. That said this specimen may be an Albinoid--still not the same as albino. Without a DNA sample we'll likely never know for sure.
