Survival for any length of time in the predatory world of wildlife is difficult enough under normal conditions, but it is almost impossible for the albino al-BY-noh animal. An albino is born without the ability to produce color pigment in its skin, hair, feathers, scales, or eyes. As a result, its hair, feathers, or scales range from snowy white to an off-white straw color. Any exposed skin usually has a pinkish look from the network of blood vessels visible through the transparent skin tissue. With the exception of its white coloration, the albino resembles normal members of its species in all respects. When it is natural for members of the species to be white, the true albino can be distinguished by its pink or red eyes.
