Albino

Albino, organism lacking normal pigmentation. The skin and hair of albino animals (including humans) is uncolored, and the irises of the eyes appear pink. Albinism, which may be total or only partial, is generally inherited. Because albino plants contain no chlorophyll and thus are unable to perform photosynthesis, they rapidly die.
