The modern-day Moby Dick is making his way up the coast of eastern Australia.

Migaloo, the world’s only documented albino humpback whale, recently made a rare appearance off the coast of Queensland.

The all-white adult humpback was first spotted in Australian coastal waters back in 1991.

Since then, Migaloo has developed an almost cult-like following in Australia. His name translates to “white fella” in the Queensland Aboriginal language.

 

Migaloo is one of four all-white whales known to be in existence.

Unlike other humpbacks in his range, Migaloo sometimes makes his migratory journey in coastal waters where humans can see him.
