Extremely Rare Albino Dolphin Captured On Film Off Florida Coast

Spotting a bottlenose dolphin in the waters off Florida’s coast is a pretty common occurrence.

Actually seeing an all-white dolphin, however, is a rather rare treat.

Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission volunteer Danielle Carter can say she did just that. And, she’s got the video to prove it.

Carter captured the frolicking dolphin swimming in waters off the east coast on Dec. 10, the conservation commission’s research institute wrote on its YouTube page.

“Researchers explained that this is a very rare sighting, but not the first of its kind,” the post explains.

The commission isn’t releasing where the sighting occurred since it doesn’t want people harassing the rare animal, First Coast News reported. The paper said only 14 other albino dolphin sightings have been logged by the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration since 1962. This latest makes the 15th.
