5. Albino Alligators
From over 2 million alligators in the United States, only about 40 are albino. This 14 year-old albino alligator (Alligator mississppiensis), named ‘White Diamond’, was born in Louisiana in the U.S. grew up at the St. Augustin-Alligator Farm in Florida, and is now part of a travelling reptile show called ‘Land der Reptilien’.
4. Albino Frogs
Albino frogs are actually fairly common. These 19 identical male albino frogs were prepared by nuclear transplantation into unfertilized eggs of the dark green female frog, as part of an experiment on animal cloning.
3. Albino Penguin
This one-in-a-million albino African penguin chick was hatched at Bristol Zoo on 2002. The chick, named Snowdrop, was born alongside its black-and-white sibling and keepers suspected it was a first among zoos.
2. Albino Monkeys
This albino Pygmy Marmoset monkeys were born at the Froso Zoo in Ostersund, on 2006. Both died just hours after they became the first albinos of their breed to be born in captivity. The Pygmy Marmoset monkeys are the world’s smallest, growing up to just 35cm and weighting barely 100 grams.
1. Albino Whales
‘Moby’, the all white whale, was first observed by Paul Hodda from the Australian Whale Conservation Society in the early 1990′s. Since then he has been spotted at least 30 times. Moby is believed to be male, is probably an albino and is the first white whale for many decades not destined to meet the likes of Captain Ahab.
