Readers went wild for our recent post “Special Albinos and Unusually White Animals,” offering more than a hundred comments about their own sightings and interactions.
Eric Rose from Kentucky let us know about two albino alligators named Snowball and Snowflake that live at the Newport Aquarium in Ohio. Cul8rAnnieGator of Edmonton, Alberta, Canada, says her town is home to a population of white and pale-gray magpies. Other readers reported seeing white robins, hawks, porcupines, deer, monkeys, and more. (Related: “Pictures: Albino Animals Revealed.”)
We were so impressed that we’ve combed through photos on Your Shot, the National Geographic user-generated photo community, to give you even more pictures of albino and white animals.
