Albinism (49) More files...
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.
