25 Albino Animals that Give You the Fuzzies!

By -

Albinism is the lack of melanin in the body that yields discoloration of hair, eyes and skin/fur. Albinism in humans is fairly common; it is prevalent in animal species too, albeit to a lesser degree. Nonetheless, nature has worked its magic to create unique members in different species that stand out, sometimes literally.

Albino animals are sometimes excluded from groups, and are not preferred as suitable mating partners, all for the science of natural selection. This is one of the reasons why most, but certainly not all albino animals fare better in captivity. In the wild, they are easier to spot for predators, or are naturally more prone to the forces of nature. The life span of an albino alligator, for example, can be as short as 24-hours due to its incapability to bear the UV rays from the sun.

Despite the cons of albinism in animals, albino animals are an enigmatic sight. And they are certainly capable of giving us the warm fuzzies.
