15 Albino Animals That Enrich the Beauty of Our Planet

Albino animals can have a tough time in the wild because of poor eyesight and their inability to camouflage. However, some are lucky to be protected by people who truly cherish them. This is the case of albino squirrels in the city of Olney, in Illinois, who have been part of the city’s history since at least 1902. There they have laws to protect these special creatures, including right-of-way on all streets and sidewalks.
