First All-White Killer Whale Ever Seen Filmed in Russia

Our colleagues at Animal Planet report the first ever sighting of an all-white orca in Russia. CBC writes: "Researchers with the Far East Russia Orca Project (FEROP) revealed on Monday that they succeeded in filming the elusive creature in 2010, but held back on publicizing the rare find until now, as they wanted to study him further. They have been looking for Iceberg ever since. The possibly albino mammal is believed to be the first one ever observed in the wild. He was observed in the North Pacific, east of the Kamchatka Peninsula near the Commander Islands, according to a release on Monday."
