Half Albino Peacock

This is half albino half normal peacock. Perhaps, it’s a crossbreed between normal specie and an albino one, like that:

And this is how the real albino peacock looks like (for comparison purposes)

Actually, in nature such accurate 50/50 beings are rare. Exempli gratia, not so long ago an apple was found. What makes it stand out from the billions of other apples being grown every year on Earth is its surprisingly accurate 50/50 split of colors.

  1. Yes. All these photos are real photos, no photoshopped or doctored. The nature could be amazingly weird sometimes.

  2. It’s a chimera (twins that are mixed into one animal instead of becoming two separate bodies. This can even happen with people!)

  3. oh my goodness this is a magnificent creature…I love looking at your site and actually have several albino dogs myself…I have a thing for anything “Albino:…they are just so beautiful…I would love to post a picture if possible or submit to you…

  4. This is half albino half normal peacock. Perhaps, it’s a crossbreed between normal specie and an albino one, like that:

  5. I’m sorry to burst anybody’s bubble but there is no such thing as half-albino. The controlling gene is one or the other. However, a different genetic mutation is responsible for the coloring on this beautiful birds and many other creatures and humans with this effect; it’s call piebaldism. http://www.mashpedia.com/Piebaldism

  6. I enjoy this website and would like to see more pics like these! And that pic of an apple must have been photoshopped cos like no way!!

  7. The peacock ins’t albino. It’s just a variety of peacock, quite literally called White Peacock.

  8. How wonderful if i could get a pic sent to me would appriciate it so very much thanks made my day

  9. Oh, this is gorgeous!!! My daughter is having a peacock themed wedding. I would love to have a full pic to blow up for the occasion.

  10. Chimera, people – Ok here I go… two separate fertilised ova (twins) merge into one creating one unique split coloured creature. Incidentally a large majority of the population of humans that are left handed were once dizygotic or monozygotic twins but through the process of reabsorption they murdered their sibling.

  11. I concur

    Chimeraism is a condition that occurs when two fertilized eggs fuse together to create one organism with two different sets of DNA. Different genes from each set of DNA may be expressed in different areas, creating a further condition called mosaicism. There is no definite conclusion as to whether this peacock is a chimera or whether it is exhibiting a form of genetic co-dominance. I was also left handed until I went to a catholic school.
