Migaloo - Albino Humpback Whale on The Great Barrier Reef

"Migaloo" is a local celebrity (above video is from a similar encounter in 2007). The full-grown adult male may or may not be a true albino, but he is so revered that he has his own set of laws protecting him -- any boat that gets within 500 meters (1640 feet) of him is punishable by a fine of thousands of dollars.
