Rare White Faced Deer Finds a Home After Being Rejected by its Mother

Lovely piebald fawn, who was rescued from her mother after she tried to kill the newborn. With part albino traits, she will have limited sight and hearing and other health issues. But she will be safe and loved at a deer farm.

His birth mother, "Bunny" is a special type of whitetail deer known as the Piebald, which carries a genetic defect causing it to have large areas of white in its coat. The defect reportedly occurs in less than 1 percent of the whitetail deer population.

A barn owl is usually white with brown spots but this one has melanism. Melanistic animals produce too much pigment and are black or dark brown instead of their normal color. It is like the opposite of albinism. The black panther is the prototypical example of melanism. Barn owls and panthers adapt to this condition and use it in their advantage. But even then the owls can't survive in the wild because they get killed by other owls who see their black color as a threat.

Sweet baby!!! I raised a baby from the time it couldn't even stand up and was covered with spots until he was over a year old. One of the best pets I've raised.....he thought he was a dog.

This melanistic whitetail fawn shows clear darkening of the usual brown and white coat pattern, though he isn't as dark as some that have been documented.

A very unusual genetic color variation in white-tailed deer produces “melanistic” or “melanic” deer. But a “melanic” doe will rarely have spots as seen in this awesome picture, so this "may" be at the hands of photoshop.
