Albinism

Albino Dolphin :) ♥ Yes, it's pink due to it's albinism & the blood vessels that lie just below it's layer of blubber

Melanistic jaguar - Melanism is an overabundance of black pigment in animals and is actually the opposite of albinism and even more rare.

A very unusual genetic color variation in white-tailed deer — rarer even than albinism — produces all-black offspring in that species which are known as “melanistic” or “melanic” deer.

While most people with albinism are fair in complexion, skin or hair color is not diagnostic of albinism

Doberman Pinschers are strong and alert.They have muscular bodies which means that they need proper health care and daily exercise.They can adjust in small apartment if taken on walks and for exercise daily.Direct exposure to sunlight can be harmful for them.Wobbler syndrome is common in them this disease is called Cervical spondylitis and cardiomyopathy.Albinism which is a disease in which the pigment for coat color does not work properly.Hip dysplasia and Obesity.Sometimes they suffer from dem

Rare WHITE lion - close up shot of watchful perfectly white face, seemingly inches from the photographer. (We'd hope for this being a telephoto shot! Updated RESEARCH by DdO:) - www.pinterest.com... - White lions are NOT ALBINO. White is recessive but less severe mutation in same gene that causes albinism- distinct from gene responsible for white tigers. They vary from blonde to near-white. This color does not appear to disadvantage their survival.

Melanism Vs. Albinism - Let me amend this. Add in "Leucism". Leucistics are white but with pigmented instead of pink eyes. They sometimes have patched body color as well.

Stunning Peacocks. White peacocks are unusual in the wild, but are bred in captivity. It's caused by leucism, a condition characterized by reduced pigmentation in animals caused by a recessive gene. Unlike albinism, it is caused by a reduction in all types of skin pigment, not just melanin, and the animals have normal-colored eyes - not pink or red.

Fav Photo of the Day ~ Feb. 10, 2013 - Black Lion : Caused by recessive trait called melanism (opposite of albinism).

A very unusual genetic color variation in white-tailed deer — rarer even than albinism — produces all-black offspring in that species which are known as “melanistic” or “melanic” deer.

Leucistic Dark-eyed JuncoLeucistic or 'dilute' birds are abnormally pale or washed out, although the normal pattern and colour of the plumage is discernible. This plumage aberration is perhaps more frequent than any except albinism, though still very unusual.

The opposite of albinism called melanism, I don't think this is for real but it sure is amazing looking!

This ball python (Python regius) has leucism, a genetic condition caused by a recessive allele. Leucism causes all pigments in the body to be reduced. This differs from albinism because in albinos, only melanin production is inhibited. Photograph by Jonny Peace.

Stunning white (cremello) horse. Once called "albino," though technically there is no albinism in horses.

Black people can be albino too. Albinism results from a recessive gene in both parents that results in a lack of melanin in their child. at one time, albinos were considered evil and were even hunted or persecuted in some countries. I find them all unique and beautiful.

    Unfortunately those with albinism are still currently hunted after Africa.

    All of Gods people are BEAUTIFUL

Beautiful Albinism. How can one look so flawless? It's like looking at a porcelain doll.

Albinism is a condition in which a person has an often complete lack of pigment in their skin, hair, and eyes. In not only occurs in humans but in all other vertebrates. Unfortunately, people with albinism face discrimination as many are ignorant towards their appearance.

The opposite of albinism called melanism, a recessive trait where the skin and fur are all black. This is perhaps the most beautiful lion I have ever seen.
