As well as among people, albino individuals are found in the animal world. These are animals in which there is a deficiency or complete absence of pigmentation of the skin, hair, and iris of the eyes. Albino animals are of great interest for their unusual appearance. However, for them, this color is a big problem, since in their natural habitat it is more difficult for them than for others to hide from their enemies.
