In Dragon Hunter, Charles Gallenkamp's new book about Roy Chapman Andrew, the author writes that "In June 1909, Andrews spent three weeks at Tadoussac in Quebec, ....to collect specimens of the so-called white whales, a species of porpoise, highly prized for their snow-white fur...he acquired five specimens...[for the American Museum of Natural History].." (Chapt 3, pg 23 first paragraph.) Is this a mis-print? I can't find any information about such a furry porpoise.
Re: Do/did any porpoise have fur? 'Dragon Hunter' says YES
