No matter how powerful God seems to be, he sometimes just runs out of paint (melanin), and every time this happens an albino animal is born.
Albinism (from Latin albus, white) is a form of hypopigmentary congenital disorder, characterized by a partial lack or total absence of melanin pigment in the eyes, skin and hair, or more rarely in the eyes alone. Due to this, animals (and humans too) are unusually pale. The eyes of an animal with albinism occasionally appear red because of the underlying retinal blood vessels showing through where there is not enough pigment to cover them.
Albino animals are rare in nature, and a man always had a fascination for these creatures since ancient times. Some cultures considered albinos as sacred animals,while others – as demoniac ones.
It’s up to you to decide whether they’re sacred or demoniac, but I’m sure you will find it very educating to see this list of 26 weird albino animals.
