Baby albino whale spotted

Date Published:

We are slap bang in the middle of whale season and guess what - a baby albino whale has been spotted with its grey whale mum – who is not an albino.


The calf, reckoned to be about one week old, was spotted by Profepa during their weekly census of the whales during mating season


The baby albino, which has been named Costalito de Sal, was seen in the waters of Laguna Ojo del Liebre. This lagoon, along with Laguna de San Ignacio, makes up the whale sanctuary of El Vizcaíno. Which is considered the most important grey whale breeding space in the world.


The appearance of Costalito del Sal is the second sighting of an albino whale in these parts. Last year, an adult albino – fondly named Gallon of Milk - made a return visit to the waters of El Vizcaino Biosphere Reserve, where it hadn’t been seen for 7 years.


Check out the official video of the calf with it’s mum.
