A very rare white whale was seen off the coast of New South Wales.

The amazing sighting of an all-white whale off the coast of Australia is making waves on social media. Wildlife lovers think it might be the baby of the famous and much-loved Migaloo.

Brayden Blake, 16 years old, took a picture of the rare event at Fingal Head, Coolangatta. The magical creatures were swimming about 1,600 feet offshore. At first, the teen and many other people who had seen his video thought that the white whale was Migaloo, but it turns out this is just another white whale. There’s a good chance it’s Migaloo’s child.

Dr. Wally Franklin, a marine expert, told 9NEWS, “This is the first time I’ve been able to say that the white whale I’m looking at might not be Migaloo.” “Because it’s still early in the season, the sighting fits with the idea that it’s a young whale. This could be a second white whale, which would be amazing in and of itself.”

Migaloo, whose name means “white fella” in the native language of Australia, was first seen in 1991. At the time, she was thought to be the only white whale living off Australia’s coast. Dr. Franklin says that more than 40,000 whales are living in these waters.

The marine expert said, “She [Migaloo] is the only albino whale in the group of over 40,000 whales in eastern Australia, and if it’s a younger white whale, that’s only two out of 40,000.”

Brayden Blake accidentally caught the “extremely rare event” on video while using a drone to watch sharks.

The 16-year-old said, “I was paddling and surfing with my friend when I heard this strange singing or screaming sound.” “My heart was beating fast. It was just so cool. I’m so glad I got to see it.”
