VIDEO: Man Spotted Two Rare Albino Deer In Backyard

Not many people can say that they’ve seen an albino animal, let alone an albino deer.

The odds of albinism occurring in deers are one in 30,000.

The deers unique white colour is caused by an absence of melanin, which affects its skin and hair, and caused its eyes to go red or pink.

By definition, an albino deer is totally absent of body pigment and is solid white with pink eyes, nose, and hooves.”

As previously mentioned, an albino deer is extremely rare to find in the wid.

Albinism is a recessive genetic trait that is found in animals where the gene responsible for hair, tissue, or skin coloration is missing. Since albinism and piebaldism are recessive traits, both parents must carry the trait to have albino or piebald offspring. The genes responsible for piebald and albino deer are not dominant and oftentimes the deer carrying these genes are biologically inferior.”

What’s even more special about this sighting, is that their were two albino deer in the same spot.

Kevin Miles, the lucky man who spotted the phenomenon spotted the deer in his own back yard. With quick thinking he grabbed his phone and captured the footage of the deer together.

You can see that these deer are true albinos since they have no coloration whatsover, and also have pink noses, eyes and hooves,

Because of this, albino deer sightings are not common. It’s even rarer to see two albino deer in the same spot at the same time.
