June 12 (UPI) -- A California whale watching company shared photos and video of an unusual visitor -- an albino dolphin calf swimming with its pod.

Princess Monterey Whale Watching shared the photos and video on Facebook after the all-white calf was first spotted Wednesday morning with a pod of risso's dolphins.

The company said the dolphin is believed to be albino, but could also be leucistic, a similar condition that involves only the partial loss of pigmentation.

The whale watchers said the calf made a second appearance Friday, when the video was recorded.
