Albino Animals

Someone sent me a picture today of an albino peacock. This started me on a picture search for other albino animals. Since I just got home from a Christmas party and my feet hurt and I want to go to bed, I leave you tonight with several pictures of albino animals because I'm just too lazy to do anything else.

Don't the Winter Brothers qualify as albino animals? Haha... :)

Dawn - Isn't it beautiful? That's what got me started searching for others.

Jen - I think there's something magical about albinos. Maybe it's because of Legolas in Lord of the Rings. I think they're just beautiful, especially the Winter brothers.

That squirrel is so cute (and so is Legolas)! :)

Leading Lady - They all look so fragile, even the moose. Well, maybe not the snake.

I had an albino female, of the human species that is, who was in one of my study groups for a class in college. I never could look into her light silver eyes and not inwardly shutter.

Ed - I've actually never been that close to an albino person. I bet it's hard for them.

Do you know how peacock owners get their birds to display their "wares"? They say, "C'mon, spread for me." And this is MALES they are talking to....

Old Horsetail - You're so funny! Wild Kingdom,indeed.
