This is pretty cool, a white humpback (hunchback?) whale. Albinism can occur in virtually any vertebrate the result of inheriting a defective recessive gene from each of two normal-appearing parents, a gene that does not produce a functional enzyme needed to produce melanin, a skin pigment. Does it have pink eyes? Of course, the Moby Dick of literary fame was a sperm whale.
