The video of the Albino red deer is doing the rounds but quite frankly I think it is a bit suspicious that the area where it is located is quite famous for various “cinegetic” species such as mouflon, roe deer etc etc… It wouldn’t surprise me at all if this turns out to be captive bred and released into the zagaleta estate (you know where all the multimillionaires have houses close to Marbella…. hmmmmm sospichosos… 🙂
Yes, a bit suspicious I agree…. Also is it a true albino? I can’t tell from the video if its got red eyes..
Leucism is a rare genetic pattern that causes a reduction in the pigment of an animal’s hair and skin. The natural colour of the red deer ranges from dark red to brown. They are often thought to be albinos; however, unlike albinos, who have characteristically red eyes, deer with leucism have normal colouring in their eyes. It is distinguished biologically from albinism in that it causes a reduced pigmentation in all skin types, and not just melanin.
