whale otaku rejoice

Given that otaku tend to be an obsessive bunch by definition, I find this rather convenient: an actual white whale.

A new white humpback has been sighted off Byron Bay on the east coast of Australia.

The newcomer, which was filmed by a television news helicopter, has excited marine scientists who think it may be related to Migaloo – to date, the only known all-white humpback whale.


Melville is surely grinning in his grave.
