In September 2011 a rare baby white whale gave an amazing show in the Whitsunda Islands off the Queensland Coast. The whale calf was believed to be just a few weeks old, and the Whitsunday Islands are known to be a breeding and calving area for the east coast humpback whale population.
It’s impossible to tell yet whether the animal is related to the famous white whale Migaloo.
Species expert Mark Read, of the Great Barrier Reef Marine Park Authority, said without DNA information experts would be unable to link the calf to the other famous white whale.
We know that baby white whales can be the result of a dark parent and a white parent, but it is not guaranteed that Migaloo is the father.
