Albinism is a condition in which an animal, plant, or human is born without any pigmentation or colouration, resulting in white fur, feathers, scales, and skin, as well as pink eyes in mammals, birds, reptiles, amphibians, and fish, as well as invertebrates. The probability of an animal being albino is 1 in 20,000.
