Given the myriad of colors we see in the animal kingdom, seeing a purely white animal can be an unsettling but magical experience. Albino animals and rare all-white species and leucistic creatures are the same as any other animals but with a coloration that makes them (sometimes literally) one in a million.

Albinism is an umbrella term that covers a variety of genetic pigmentation disorders. Most creatures born with albinism are born with white or pink skin and fur, and some (not all) have reddish or violet eyes. Albinism in animals is associated with poor eyesight and a higher susceptibility to skin cancers, but such cute animals and people are otherwise no different from their peers. Leucism is a similar condition that can affect a wider array of pigments than albinism does.

Though the white fur might seem super cool, it actually makes the animal pop out of their environments more, thus more visible to predators. And if these unusual animals might fit well in ever-wintery landscapes, it is so much harder for those living in the jungle.

If you have a photo of a beautiful, all-white, cool animal, we'd love to see it added to this list!

albinism is a genetic disease where the DNA code for pigment of the fur/skin got messed up. It is quite amazing.

The first is an example of leucism, the second is an example of albinism. Both are beautiful.

I had a albino rat, my sister saved it from a lab she was working in, it unfortunately died from cancer in the end.
