Who is Migaloo?
Migaloo is a rare white humpback whale that has recently been seen around the Great Barrier Reef. He was first spotted in 1991 and was believed to be around 3-5 years old at that time. Currently he is one of only three known white humpback whales. The others, Willow & Bahloo, are a bit more shy and don’t often show their faces.
Is he albino?
While many people describe Migaloo as being albino, scientists believe that he is not truly albino due to his brown eyes. So, the correct terminology is hypo-pigmented. One thing is for sure, he is unique compared to Willow and Bahloo as they both have some black spots on their bodies.
