Today’s article is just a fun oddity. It shows you the top albino animal celebrities. In case you are unfamiliar with the term, albinism is a defect of melanin (pigment) production. People (or animals) that have this disorder lack coloration in their skin, hair, and eyes. Eye and skin complications are common for albinos. Albino animals in nature are very uncommon because “selection of the fittest” doesn’t usually favor animals that don’t camouflage well, or have poor vision. However, they do exist! This article shows pictures and has blurbs about the most beloved pigmentally challenged animals, including a penguin, koala, and dolphin. I also found this website that just has fun albino animal pictures, like a camel, rhino, and giraffe! Not a super conservation oriented post, but I thought it was cool to see the pictures and read the stories. I hadn’t ever seen albino animals before that weren’t rats or guinea pigs. Anywho, enjoy!
