Everyone, say hello to Migaloo. That's what people call the white humpback whale pictured up top. When he was first spotted back in 1991, Migaloo (which is Aboriginal for "white fella") was the first all-white humpback researchers had ever seen. (And according to his website, he remains the only documented white humpback whale in the world.)

Every year since, whale watchers have kept an eye out for the albino beastie, hoping to catch a glimpse of him during his annual migration from Australia to the Antarctic. The photos up top are screenshots, taken from what's believed to be the first sighting of Migaloo this year. Watch the full video over at CNN. Read more about Migaloo over on his website.
