Nature can be truly amazing, and each of these animals is a testament to that. They were all supposed to be born in a specific way, but instead, a minor genetic or environmental change induced a spectacular color change.
Let's take a look!
This peacock is a half-albino, half-regular peacock. This would be caused by embryos fusing in the egg. The condition makes this peacock a chimera.
This pink dolphin is an albino, which means it has no skin pigment at all.
This is another example of albinism. It's a rare condition which affects only around 20,000 of any given species.
This is a chimera zebra, but why the markings are so unusual, we simply don't know. As you'll see from our next item, this isn't albinism at work.
This is what an albino zebra looks like. The black stripes don't disappear entirely, but they are very, very pale.
Another chimera, this one is really unusual because it's a sea creature and thus much less likely to be seen.
This is a bit of a special case. There's nothing genetically awry here and nor has the bear been painted. This is a reaction to medication.
This is an unusual locust or grasshopper. How it attained the pink coloring isn't clearly understood.
This gorilla is, of course, an albino.
This cat may be the most striking example of chimerism that we've ever seen.
