Just 1 in 17,000 persons have albinism, according to the American Association for Pediatric Ophthalmology and Strabismus (AAPOS). A hereditary lack of color in the skin, hair, and eyes (which are often pink) is known as albinism.
Past the human species, other animals have presented with albinism and for how rare they are, they’re always also totally magical looking. For example, this screech owl with albinism. Don’t mistake those beautiful white feathers for a snow owl, this is an entirely different breed of owl!
His cherry-red eyes peer into the depths of your soul. Honestly, everything about this incredibly rare (and REAL) albino owl is equally magical and terrifying.
It’s always a good day to appreciate the facial expressions of owls, and this rare owl does not disappoint.
Screech owls are usually gray or rusty brown and their eyes are usually yellow.
