Albinism

An albino animal is born without the ability to produce color pigment in its skin, hair, feathers, scales, or eyes. As a result they color ranges from snowy white, pink to an off-white straw color. Being light colored is certainly not an advantage in the wild - animals are more visible to both predators and prey and the lack of melanin negatively affects their vision by affecting development of the eyes in addition to causing extreme photosensitivity making survival even less likely. If you have seen an albino animal in the wild you are lucky, especially if it has matured into an adult.

Hematophagy is the practice of feeding on blood. Since blood is a fluid tissue rich in nutritious proteins and lipids that can be taken without great effort, hematophagy is a preferred form of feeding for many small animals such as the familiar mosquito, leech and bedbug. This gallery features some of the expected hungry creatures but some unusual ones as well. A Dracula Ant worker punctures the skin of a larva to sip its trickling blood, Galapagos Vampire Finches feeding on the blood of boobies from wounds the finches have created and parasitic isopods that latch onto fish puncturing their skin and feasting on their blood. Yes, some photos could be considered gross but all animals must survive!

In the animal kingdom creatures use bubbles to their benefit as well - for defense, protection and fun!~~Grasshoppers aerate their bitter blood to create a foamy deterrent from predators. Mass mating frogs make a mat of frothy bubbles to protect their fertilized eggs. Water spiders fill their aquatic silken nests with a bubble of oxygen making a cozy and inhabitable home.~~In the ocean whales use bubble nets to corral fish while cooperative feeding and as an aggressive display while courting. Bubbles are for fun too! Belugas and dolphins blow round (toroidal) rings from their blowholes as a source of entertainment.
