White Southern Right whale in Flinders Bay

White Southern Right Calf

6. Aug

This week we have had the pleasure of meeting a little newborn white Southern Right Calf and her mother in the shallows along Flinders Bay in Augusta.  The boys have named her “Cookies & Cream” referring to the brown speckles on her head.

She isn’t an albino as you would expect, rather 5% of Southern Right Whales are born white and darken in colour as they mature.  At the moment she is thrilling everyone!
