White Deer?

The picture of this "white deer" is super creepy. I would freak out if I saw one of these things while I was driving at night.  Contrary to my first thought, they are not albino.  Albinos are more rare and lack the ability to create pigment.  These deer are genetic mutations and have some, although very little, pigmentation, especially in their eyes.

  2. I really think that guy looks so much like a goat, I would think a goat got loose! I would love to see one... but I feel sorry for him or her.... can't hide from predators.
