    Albino animals are incredibly rare in nature. They’re so rare, in fact, that many ancient cultures considered albino animals to be magical. Albinism affects all vertebrate species and is the result of a genetic disorder that causes a lack of pigment in the skin, eyes, and hair. It’s extremely rare for an animal to be born albino in the first place, but unlike humans, an albino animal lives with a huge disadvantage because it lacks the natural camouflage that nearly all animals have in their pigmentation, making albino animals much more susceptible to predators, especially at an early age. The fact that these albino animals made it to adulthood is, in itself, pretty miraculous. Here are 30 amazing albino animals:
