It is listed in the top 12 most endangered list. Albino Animals. Birdwatchers are rushing to Avebury, near Marlborough, Wiltshire to hopefully catch a glimpse of a rare albino jackdaw.

Albino Animals

Author Andrew Collins was the first to photograph the bird which locals have named Jackie. Other fabulous albino animals include: According to Wikipedia there is no reported case of a true “albino” horse even though white horses have been referred to as albino in literature and some registries. All so-called “albino” horses have pigmented eyes, usually brown or blue, and thus are not true albinos. Many albino mammals, such as mice or rabbits, typically have a white hair coat, unpigmented skin and reddish eyes. Dominant white in horses is caused by the absence of pigment cells melanocytes, whereas albino animals have a normal distribution of melanocytes In other animals, patches of unpigmented skin, hair, or eyes due to the lack of pigment cells (melanocytes) are called piebaldism, not albinism nor partial albinism.

Blind German Spitz dog uses echoes to find his way round. A dog born without eyes is finding his way in life after teaching himself to ‘see’ like a BAT – using echolocation.

Rowan, a German Spitz, barks and then listens to the echoes to help him tell where he is in relation to his surroundings. Owner Sam Orchard, 41, was shocked when a congenital defect caused Rowan to be born without eyes. Pythonregius.com - Constrictors Unlimited- Mike Wilbanks - Home.

Snakes without fathers: one of the unusual baby boas A female boa constrictor snake has given birth to two litters of extraordinary offspring.

BBC - Earth News - Snake gives 'virgin birth' to extraordinary babies

Evidence suggests the mother snake has had multiple virgin births, producing 22 baby snakes that have no father. More than that, the genetic make-up of the baby snakes is unlike any previously recorded among vertebrates, the group which includes almost all animals with a backbone. Details are published in the Royal Society journal Biology Letters.

The wispy clouds of a distant nebula bursting with newborn stars take on an eerie face-like shape sculpted by stellar winds in a new photo snapped by a telescope in Chile. The hotbed of star birth, called NGC 3324, is full of hot young stars, whose ultraviolet radiation is making the gas clouds glow.

Meet the small yellow worm that can REGROW its own head - and its old memories. If the planarian worm's head is cut off it can regenerate a new oneScientists have found this new head contains memories from the old oneThis suggests memories are stored in another part of the body By Victoria Woollaston Published: 14:19 GMT, 11 July 2013 | Updated: 16:26 GMT, 11 July 2013 Scientists have discovered that not only can the planarian worm regrow its head if its cut off, the regenerated brain contains the same memories that were stored in the decapitated one. Researchers from Tufts University in Boston tested the memory of the planarian worms by measuring how long it took them to reach food in a lab environment.

Finicky neurons get all fired up. U. MICHIGAN (US) — Neurons are very good at what they do, picking out signals from a flood of information with more finesse than anyone ever realized, new research shows. The findings, published in the journal PLoS Computational Biology, add to the basic knowledge of how neurons work and could lead to better ways to design brain implants used to treat neurological diseases such as Parkinson’s disease. Researchers examined neuronal excitation using mathematical models and experiments using the squid giant axon—a long arm of a nerve cell that controls part of the water jet propulsion system in squid. Neurons “can pick out a signal from hundreds of other, similar signals,” says Daniel Forger, associate professor of mathematics and a research assistant professor of computational medicine and bioinformatics at the University of Michigan.
