There was speculation whether it was the world famous white whale called Migaloo. This beast was first spotted in 1991, and until recently was the only known albino humpback, among a population of about 23,000 whales that pass by the Gold Coast on their way from Antarctica to warmer waters to the north.
But Sea World marine sciences director Trevor Long confirmed that it was another albino mammal dubbed "Son of Migaloo". Watch this impressive aerial footage which captures the beauty of this remarkable rare albino humpback whale.
