    Default "Freaks" of Nature...

    I found this album very fascinating. It has pictures of many siamese twins of reptiles and mammals alike, along with some beautiful and disturbing specimens that are albino or malformed.

    Enjoy. My personal favorite is the albino white-tailed deer, but snake with a foot arrives at close second.

    Oh awesome! They've been updating! I've seen this site before since they are local to me. Eric and a friend of his are trying the Gaboon/Rhino Viper cross. Too bad he isn't trying with his pink Gaboon girl.

    I can't find the website I looked up after first seeing that picture. It was a breeder with a bunch of different Peacock morphs including this handsome boy:





    I really wanted to find it because I could have sworn they said that there has not yet been a true albino Peacock and that these were leucistics. Don't hold me to that until I can find the website.

    reguardless, both of those birds are outstanding! Such a beautiful species, they throw in the white, super cool! I was looking them up, apparent Kita the one you posted seems to be a pied. I dont see an albino in the mutations list, but I do see some white ones. Incase if any of you are interested in seeing some mutations of the indian peacock

    I can tell you these guys are pretty cool, we had one in the vets office, he got hit by a car and the owner was out of town for a few weeks. The person who hit it knew who it belonged to, so for a few weeks it stayed with us, we called him Henry. We used to let him roam the office, but his butt was naked from being hit by the car..lol

    The white deer or buck is what people would have call a 'white heart' it was considered 'kingly' you hunt them way back in the day.

    I love the peacock shots.

    I've heard that too. Hopefully that practice has long since been stopped.
