(CNN) — It may seem straight out of Moby Dick, but a rare white whale is thrilling Australians off the eastern coast.
The albino humpback has been nicknamed “Migaloo” by researchers who track his movements.

Albino whales are rare and Migaloo is the only documented all-white humpback adult, according to Peter Harrison, director of marine ecology research at Southern Cross University in Australia.

Migaloo was first seen in 1991 when he was a juvenile, Harrison says, and researchers believe he is now in his 20s.
