Dead baby albino not Costalito de Sal

Date Published:

Autopsy confirms that the dead baby albino whale, found in March, is NOT Costalito de Sal... 

Last month we reported the very sad death of Cabo’s baby albino grey whale. Who had fondly been named by locals as Costalito de Sal.

The baby whale’s body had been found beached, in a state of advanced decomposition, in Laguna Ojo de Liebre. And with signs of struggle, most likely an attack by predators.

However, results of the autopsy have just been released. And it now seems that the dead albino, was not in fact Costalito del Sal. Apparently, it was a previously unseen baby albino whale. That was bigger and slightly older that Costalito. And with more adult features.

Fingers crossed Costalio de Sal has survived, and is now 10 000 km away in the waters of the North Pole. Everyone will be hoping the safe return of Costalito next year.

Whale season is now officially over. And despite the slightly lower number of whales– due to the cyclical el niñol/la niña effects -  it has been another successful season. In Ojo de Liebre alone, there were over 4,000 visitors. Total figures covering Cabo, and all of BCS have not yet been released.
