A rare white moose was spotted and caught on film in Sweden.

Footage of the moose filmed in Varmland, Sweden, was posted to YouTube Sunday. There are only 100 of these moose in the entire country, reported BBC News.

WATCH:

The moose was spotted going for a quick dip in the lake. Contrary to popular belief, the moose is not albino. The white look derives from a rare genetic mutation that causes the moose to grow white fur, reported WCVB Boston.

“Thank goodness it’s not in America. Someone here would probably shoot it,” a U.S. resident tweeted.

“Hopefully not a white-supremamoose,” tweeted another.
