I sure hope she’ll be safe from poachers. Some might see that freedom as an open invitation to come nab her again.

Animals can be pure or partial albinos. Pure albinos usually have pink eyes, nails, scales and skin. They’re pink because, without coloration, the blood vessels show through. In humans and some other animals, the eyes of an albino are light blue or green because of the way light passes through the iris.
