White Whale

A rare all white killer whale has been spotted by scientists off the coast of Bering Island, Russia. Nicknamed "Iceberg", he was found by the Far East Russia Orca Project. Traveling in a pod of 13 orcas, they can tell by the size and height of the dorsal fin that the orca is at least 16 years old. They have only seen 2 other all white orcas, but they were very young.
