A beautiful and rare white Humpback Whale has been spotted making its way up Australia's east coast. As far as I'm aware, the whale's identity hasn't been officially confirmed, but many believe it's Migaloo, the famous white Humpback that was first seen back in 1991.

According to this article, humpback whales live from 45 to 50 years.

As far as is known, Migaloo is the ONLY white Humpback, though a few years back there were unconfirmed reports of a white Humpback calf. The calf that was seen yesterday is a different species.
