Migaloo, the only known all white humpback whale, was photographed by jenny dean (first, third photos) in the great barrier reef. though often described as albino, migaloo has brown eyes and is more likely leucistic or hypopigmented. last year, a white orca named iceberg was photographed (second photo) for the first time by e. lazareva in the north pacific, but is again not technically believed to be albino.
