Rare white killer whale near Alaska


This National Geographic video says about itself:

Off the coast of Argentina, seasoned killer whales hunt sea lion pups.

From Wildlife Extra:

March 2008. Scientists conducting research in the North Pacific have sighted a very rare white Killer whale, or Orca. The white killer whale was spotted with its pod about two miles off Kanaga Volcano, part of Alaska’s Aleutian Islands. At the time, Kodiak-based ship Oscar Dyson was on a research expedition for The US National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA), assessing pollock fish stocks near Steller sea lion haulout sites.

Orca killing Sea otters means Bald eagles kill more birds: here.
