This Albino Owl With Unusually Red Eyes Is The Definition Of Unique

Most animals try to blend in with nature, so they hide from predators or they can become better hunters. Whatever is the case mostly all of them evolved in a way that they blend in into their natural habitat.

Sadly, we can’t say the same for this giant red-eyed albino owl, kept in captivity. The reason why it was born this way is lack of melanin, an “ingredient” that makes owls darker as they grow, including their hair, eyes, and skin.

This miracle of nature has gone viral on the Internet, especially among ornithologists around the world, since you can rarely see such an amazing animal in the wilderness.
