Pictured: The 100,000-to-one black barn owl

Black and White: Sable (left) has melanism (a 100,000-to-one gene mutation) that makes her the opposite to an albino. Black owls are usually killed as chicks by their mothers who reject their colouring. She would be attacked by other owls in the wild. This barn owl was born in captivity.
