Albinos of the animal kingdom

Does being completely white make them less cute?

On the contrary, unlike albino humans I think these critters are even cuter than their “custom” colored kin. It’s clear that animals aren’t protected from genetic anomalies any more than people are, but at least most of them are not discriminating. If you’re interested, read more about the albino croc and the albino moose.

    The peacock is not albino, it is naturally white, like the white swan e.g.. So it is not a genetically mistake!

  • Anon Posted on April 22, 2008

    The gorilla is photoshopped.

  • Charlie Posted on April 22, 2008

    Alot of these animals are actually LEUSISTIC, not Albinos. Albinos lack all black pigments and thus have pink eyes. Many of these pics show black eyes.

    i si the dumb dumb

    Super Sonic?

  • kirse is wrong Posted on April 22, 2008

    Kirse, no that is incorrect. DUH

  • PENIX Posted on April 22, 2008

    I’m pretty sure the white alligator is also naturally white.

  • PENIX Posted on April 22, 2008

    Michael Jackson is also naturally white.

  • Jordan Posted on April 22, 2008

    The ape wants me to come to him, for some reason.

  • klasdj Posted on April 22, 2008

    That gorilla is freaking me out.

  • Doug Posted on April 22, 2008

    ^^^all genetic variation comes from a random mutation

  • Shortshire Posted on April 23, 2008

    I’d like to see an albino squirrel someday. They look awesome in your picture.

  • Graham Jenson Posted on April 23, 2008

    LMAO

  • willies Posted on April 23, 2008

    UGH! they all look rank now… FREAKS

  • Old CD Reviews Posted on April 23, 2008

    the squirrel is the best!

  • elnota Posted on April 23, 2008

    the gorilla isn’t photoshopped, try search “copito de nieve” in google.

  • Bob Holness Posted on April 23, 2008

    We had two or three albino squirrels in the trees at my school when I grew up. Fantastic to see.

    I wonder if albinoism is nature’s way of getting through periods in history where little sunlight reaches the earth’s surface, i.e. during meteorite crashes, volcanoes, &c.

  • Me Posted on April 23, 2008

    The gorila was real. Not photoshop.
    It was in Barcelona´s zoo. Was the alpha male of the group there and his name was “copito de nieve” meaning snow flake.

  • Paul C. Brown Posted on April 23, 2008

    The gorilla is most definitely not photoshopped. His name was “Copito de Nieve” (“Little Snowflake”) and lived at Barcelona Zoo until he died a vew years ago.

    See http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Copito_de_Nieve.

    That’s the gorilla I saw the original Star Trek, they must have cut the horns off.

  • Barcelona Posted on April 23, 2008

    The gorilla is named “Floquet de Neu” and it means “Little Snowflake”. He was a very big star in the zoo of Barcelona last century.

  • subcorpus Posted on April 23, 2008

    what about cats …
    white cats … ???

    come on …

  • Jamie Dalgetty Posted on April 23, 2008

    I’d like to know the survival rate for these type of animals.

  • Songboom Posted on April 23, 2008

    Funky!

  • Stone Posted on April 26, 2008

    As far as I can tell the only non albino animal in the list is the peacock. If you look it up the White Peacock is a rare version of the Indian Peacock, but it is not an albino mutation. The ape is real, the alligator is also real. no photoshopping in any of these pics. The white whale would be awesome to get to see though.

  • Lidia Key Posted on May 30, 2008

    i have an albino budgie. purest white. is it true they can’t breed?

  • Lee Posted on July 4, 2008

    if you think this is freaky, one time i saw an albino spider. i also saw an albino starfish. super super super super super super rare.

  • Vanessa Posted on August 25, 2008

    That penguin is hella cute!!!

  • Katrina Posted on September 1, 2008

    The snake is gross!! Yuck..discusting!

  • Shawn Posted on September 5, 2008

    That burmese python and several of the other animals up there are leusistic, not albino. The peacock is a naturally occuring color phase, not a mutation. Albinos have red eyes, dark eyed whites are either color phases or lesustic, most leusistic creatures have clear nails and hair, so are very obvious. An albino burmese python is actually orange and white, no where near the snow white snake in the picture. Only a leusistic snake is completely solid white and is a herp collectors dream snake. Not everything that is white is albino.

  • Shawn Posted on September 5, 2008

    Also, im pretty sure people suffering from albinism are pretty damn offended by that opening line. What difference does it make what color they are?

  • jim Posted on September 9, 2008

    your mom’s the best

  • Jose Posted on October 18, 2008

    The gorilla is… or was, Copito de Nieve.

  • WRONG Posted on November 2, 2008

    are you blind? most of these pics show bright pink eyes

  • Dude Posted on November 17, 2008

    I’m very familiar with Photoshop, and i can tell you – it’s not. But it might be a suit with man inside 😀

  • Alissa Posted on December 5, 2008

    Very true Shawn! I’d love to have a leusistic snake! That Burmese is BEAUTIFUL!!!

  • REAL Posted on March 21, 2009

    Yes all of these animals are albino!

  • lorlord Posted on April 22, 2009

    Yeah wow that opening line was a little harsh.
    Albino people are cute too i bet!
    and regardless of whether or not they’re ALL albino, they’re all beautiful.
    EXCEPT THAT LAST ONE.
    i don’t like how he looks at me..
    also, the least impressive V_V.

  • mrs. ruiz Posted on April 30, 2009

    the pictures are cool, but im wondering if anyone has seen and/or heard of an ALBINO, not “white”, but an albino WOLF….

    for lo, i have searched til’ i am blue in the face and still cannot find one T_T

  • tango Posted on May 20, 2009

    the snake is the most suprising, i’ve never thought of something like that before

  • magicboa Posted on May 20, 2009

    The python is leucistic, not albino. (S)he is very beautiful. I have a Texas rat snake who also is leucistic. Albinism & leucism are often confused. Albinos of any species have no melanin whatsoever.

  • magicboa Posted on May 20, 2009

    How about a gallery of MELANISTIC creatures?

  • Dorothea Bozicolona Volpe Posted on May 21, 2009

    I wonder if each and every one of these animals are albinos. I have a feeling not.

  • kakashiwolf13 Posted on May 27, 2009

    omfg!!! finally some one who loves wolves too..srry lil spazy
    any way all r soooo cool!!!!!!! also im not givin up on an albino wolfie!!!

  • Tiahna Posted on July 3, 2009

    a white peacock is not naturally that color it is normally green e.c.t.

  • al Posted on August 8, 2011
