Ultra Rare Dolphin Spotted

An albino bottle-nose dolphin was believed to be captured on video off the coast of Florida on December 10, 2014.

Footage of the rare white dolphin -- which the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration says has only been spotted a handful of times near Florida -- was taken by Danielle Carter, a volunteer with the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission.

Very little is known about albino dolphins due to their extreme rarity, says NOAA.

This is not the first albino creature spotting we've heard about recently, though.

Back in November, a rare white deer was spotted in Minnesota park. Not to mention the two rare albino lobsters caught in the same week off the coast of Maine at the end of the summer.
