Check out these pictures of rare white animals. While some of them were born as albinos, others like the white giraffe I blogged about here some weeks ago, are the way they are as a result of a genetic mutation.
The odd one out of this group is the elephant which only appears white due to dried white clay residue on his skin following a bath at a watering hole. It would be awesome to see an actual white elephant though, that would bring the proverb about the "white elephant in the room" to live, wouldn't it? :)
