Albinism has always been a marvel in human society, and it’s fascinating to see that this wonder is also found in the animal kingdom. It’s a rare sight, causing the skin, hair, and eyes to have little to no pigment, resulting in everything on the body appearing white. It’s a spectacle so visually wonderful that it never fails to make people’s jaws drop, and it’s even more baffling when we see an animal that looks so abnormally exquisite.
The Bright Side team thought that this beauty ought to be showcased to the world, because these animals are so spectacular that they look as if they’ve come straight out of a fairy tale.

I’m Elfie, the new puppy! This is the first picture mom ever saw of me. How could she not fall in love? Thank you to @jamies_fosters for the post that helped me find my forever home! . You’ve probably noticed that I’m very different. I’m an albino English Setter who was rejected along with my two brothers by a breeder who wanted hunting dogs with spots. Lucky for us, we were all rescued by @muddypawsrescuenyc and brought to NYC.
