These Albino Animals From Around The World Are Extremely Rare, And Beautiful. I Can't Stop Looking.

The condition is due to the absence of tyrosinase, the copper-colored enzyme that's involved in the production of melanin, the broad term for a species' natural pigments. It's based in the recessive gene alleles and it actually affects all vertebrates equally. Check out these gorgeous albino animals.
