Most animals that appear albino actually have leukaemia, leading to the misconception that many reptiles are albinos when they are not.
Albinos are generally recognised for their lack of black pigments. However, it was argued that the definition of "albinism" excludes the existence of a partial albinism which is predominately seen in birds. White birds exhibit a form of melanin pigmentation. As far as we know, there are very few bird species in the world that don't have this, such as birds of prey, reptiles and amphibians.
For more information on the genetics of Albinism and how people live with it, see the National Organisation for Albinism and Hyperpigmentation (NOAH) and take part on Sunday the 13th of June every year which is not just the national, but the International Albinism Awareness Day. Continuously raise your own awareness and others on all things. Albinism can be very misunderstood and the effects of it can be glossed over.
Now you have a bit more of an idea of what being a person with Albinism is like!
