Sometimes it is a genetic mutation to turn an animal completely from recognition into an incredibly rare, exciting and fascinating animal. The lack of pigments in these animals makes some of them look like a completely new species.
Whether it's albinism, total pigment loss, or partial loss, it's all natural and unaffected, and these birds, reptiles, mammals and fish are absolutely breathtaking. Although they can be more easily detected by predators and are prone to damage the sensitive skin of the sun, these rare creatures are truly enchanting.
