Beautiful Albino Deer Seen Bounding Along Missouri Roadway [VIDEO]

Moments like these are far and few between. When you see an albino deer it must be your lucky day.

Native American myths believe that an albino deer, or a white deer, is a prophetic sign. Other myths and stories, like King Arthur, featured white bucks that would appear before the knights would embark on great journeys.

There is a slight difference between albino deer and white deer. White deer are leucistic which means they lack pigment in their hair but usually have brown eyes. Albinism is a lack of the enzyme that is responsible for hair, skin, and tissue coloration. Therefore albino animals will normally have red or pink irises.

You can’t tell from this video if it is a white deer or an albino animal but it is stunning none the less.

Breathtaking. It kinda looks like a llama until it starts bounding along the roadway in the typical deer hop.
