This rare albino gray whale was seen swimming in the Pacific ocean off the coast of Baja California Sur.

Mexican officials released this video footage of the whale, which has been nicknamed “Gallon of Milk.” The whale is famous in Mexico and was first seen during the 2008 to 2009 season.

Albinism is common in mammals, and is caused by a lack of melanin in the skin.
