VIDEO Rare White Humpback Whale Spotted Swimming Near Australia

Get your Moby Dick jokes out of the way now … Ok, you good? Great.

A non-fictional white whale was spotted off the Australian coast on Monday, according to The Washington Post.

The rare humpback whale was caught on camera cruising along the waves and clearing out its blowhole. Initial reports stated the pale swimmer might be Migaloo, who was first sighted in 1991 and was the only confirmed living white humpback whale at that time.

Experts are now telling the Australian Associated Press that the whale is most likely not Migaloo. The cetacean appears to be smaller than Migaloo and doesn’t have the same yellow tint as the original white humpback.

“It’s probably Migaloo Junior,” White Whale Research Centre founder Oskar Peterson told the AAP.

This a name given to a younger white humpback, also known as “son of Migaloo,” who was spotted in 2011. It is not known if this junior version is actually related to the famous first.

Right now, the fabled, but very real white whale is any fish you wish it to be. Scientists are waiting on more evidence before they can determine if the creature is a previously confirmed white whale or a new member to the exclusive club.
