White Hump­back wha­le

The sigh­t­ing of a rare white Hump­back wha­le in Hin­lo­pen Strait in August is get­ting big on various media around the world. The lucky pho­tos that Dan Fisher, mate and engi­neer on board SV Anti­gua, mana­ged to get, have by now been sold through agen­ci­es, appeared on several web­sites and made it onto north Ame­ri­can tele­vi­si­on.

Apart from the white Hump­back wha­le seen this sum­mer in Spits­ber­gen, only two more ani­mals of this rare kind are known so far, an adult and a calf, both seen off Queens­land, Aus­tra­lia.
