Scientists working off Russia's far eastern coast have captured footage of what they believe to be the first ever adult, all-white orca whale sighted in the wild. According to Reuters, scientists and students from the Far East Russia Orca Project spotted the whale twice off the coast of the Bering Island in Aug. 2010. Scientist hope to confirm soon whether the orca, nicknamed "Iceberg," is an albino.
According to U.S. National Library of Medicine, Albinism (from Latin albus, "white") is a congenital disorder in which pigment in the hair is partially or completely absence due to a lack of an enzyme found in melanin. Here are some other animals that have this unique and rare trait.
