All-white killer whale spotted off Russia


The world's only known all-white male killer whale has been spotted in the Pacific Ocean off Russia, scientists announced Monday.

The orca, dubbed "Iceberg" by the scientists, was spotted swimming with a pod of 12 others. Iceberg has a 6.5-foot-high dorsal fin and is at least 16 years old, according to a blog post by Erich Hoyt, co-director of the Far East Russia Orca Project.

It's more like an off-white or a light beige isn't it? The world's first light beige killer whale would be more appropriate, just saying.

@waggy I know how he feels-my skin has a rather pinkish tint to it but people still call me "white-boy"
