All the animals are beautiful but albino animals have a unique beauty that makes them stand out from the rest.
Who says albinos cannot be beautiful? They are unique and they are absolutely beautiful. It is this unique condition that makes them stand out and shine bright. Albinism is a condition in which cells can not produce melanin. Albino animals have a partial or complete loss of pigmentation. Albino animals are rare but they have been seen everywhere in the world. We do not care how an animal looks, we just love them for being animals.
Being an albino animal in the wild is not an easy thing. Albino animals are born with poor eyesight which puts them in danger. They find it difficult to find food. Their white color makes them stand out and they cannot completely camouflage themselves which helps predators prey on them easily. Today, we have 15 albino animals who have proved that they are full of beauty. Scroll down for these beauties!

Have you ever seen a zebra without those black stripes? If you have never seen one, you can scroll down to have a look at one. An albino zebra does not have black stripes on its body because of its inability to produce melanin. Although albino animals may look adorable to us but they find it difficult to find a mate. We feel sad for them for all the struggles they have to deal with. Scroll down for more.
