Rare white dolphin spotted in the US

A rare albino dolphin has been spotted in waters off the Florida coast in the US. Albinism is thought to have occurred in around 20 species of whales, dolphins and porpoises, but sightings are uncommon. A video, posted to YouTube, shows the snow-white dolphin surfacing several times near a shoreline of mangroves in Brevard County’s Indian River Lagoon.

In early 2014, a baby white bottlenose dolphin was seized by fishermen during one of the brutal dolphin hunts that take place regularly in Taiji., Japan. Sadly, the financial value of the calf means that it will be destined for a life in captivity.
