A rare albino whale has been filmed off Mexico's Pacific coast - apparently gliding through the waters with its calf. 

The bright white whale, which actually belongs to the grey whale species, was given the nickname Gallon of Milk. 

It was first spotted during the 2008/09 season as a juvenile with characteristics of albinism, hence the name. The whale and her calf were sighted in the area known as Isla Alambre, in la Laguna Ojo de Liebre.
