The term albinism comes from a Latin word albus (meaning “white”). This congenital disorder is caused by the lack of pigment in the skin. Downsides of albinism are not mandatory for every affected specimen, but can range from problems with exposure (due to bad protection from Sun) to damaged eyesight. Although previously written stuff sounds grim, albino animals usually have almost the same life as ordinary ones, filled with the same amount of love and joy.
