Rare White Killer Whale Photographed
UPDATE: The original photo has been replaced with a more recent photo of a white orca.

Originally observed in August 2010 near the Commander Islands in the North Pacific, researchers decided to wait until the animal had been studied further before releasing photographs.

Ed note: Almost as rare as a white killer whale is the mysterious narwhal. Our article on the “unicorn of the sea.”
