I saw a picture online recently of an all white Orca. It was beautiful. I guess being all white isn't quite as debilitating or pathological in the ocean if you are a large animal as it is say for an all white alligator - which when they are young are prey to many different species of animals. Being all white makes them conspiculous which when you are little, tender, and tasty isn't a good thing. http://www.google.com/imgres?imgurl=http://dailypicksandflic...Art
