Rare Albino White Dolphin





A rare albino white dolphin was recently seen swimming alongside a charter boat off the coast of Dana Point, CA. Thanks to a camera-toting passenger and courtesy of YouTube, the world gets to share in this rare phenomenon.

Not much is known about the albino common dolphin; the scientific community belives the same genes that cause albinic traits in humans also occurs in some dolphins.
