Leucism ---- is a condition in which there is partial loss of pigmentation in an animal resulting in white, pale, or patchy coloration of the skin, hair, feathers, scales or cuticle, but not the eyes. Unlike albinism, it is caused by a reduction in multiple types of pigment, not just melanin.
Picture of the Day: Rare White Reindeer Spotted in Mala, Sweden. I had a white buck on my property in central NY. Magnificent animal. He hung out on our land because of a natural spring fed waterfall. Every year we had to post our land to keep the darn hunters away whose goal was to bag him.
