All-White Orca Spotted

April 24, 2012 Updated Apr 24, 2012 at 10:15 AM CST

An all-white, possibly albino, killer whale was spotted in the seas off eastern Russia.

The researchers who are studying the killer whales say that the whale, dubbed as "Iceberg" is the first adult, all-white male orca that has been recorded.

Young, all-white orca whales have been spotted before, but there hasn't been one recorded living into adulthood.

"Iceberg" and his pod of 12 relative whales were first spotted off Russia's Kamchatka Peninsula.
