Extremely Rare White-as-Snow and Albino Animals

You’re used to seeing these animals in person or in pictures almost every day, but chances are you’ve never set eyes on them looking like this before.


Albinism is a rare genetic disorder which causes skin, hair or eyes to have little or no color at all. Bears are a just one species with many shades of white with a blurry and perhaps a bit confusing distinction between all of them.

For example, there is a very rare type of black bear that has white or bright creamy fur and almost white claws, but their eyes and nose pads are dark. A true albino bear’s complete lack of pigment makes their eyes, nose and paws pink while their fur and claws are white as snow.
