7 famous albino animals
According to scientists, Albinism is a congenital disorder that robs the skin, hair and eyes of color. Extremely pale, albino animals suffer from sun burns and skin cancers more frequently than non-albinos. Besides, the lack of eye pigmentation can cause problems. In particular, human albinos often require surgery or wear corrective lenses. Born in the wild, albino animals face almost insurmountable odds. Unfortunately, baby albinos – seen as an oddity within their own species and are more visible to predators. Cursed with imperfect vision, these animals may also have other health problems. And those, born in a zoo, are lucky enough to look forward to a relatively comfortable life.

7 famous albino animals
To see daylight for first time in 30 years
No creature should EVER have to go through this, not for testing or anything. They were made to live, breathe, enjoy sunshine and be free, not be locked up and tortured. I am ashamed to be human. A group of chimpanzees rescued from a laboratory in Austria just got their first dose of fresh air and sunshine in 30 years. Shortly after they were born, these chimps were taken from their mothers and used for experimentation at a pharmaceutical laboratory in Austria. They were exposed to deadly illnesses like HIV and Hepatitis in order to test for possible “cures” and treatments. After a long torturous ordeal they were released to a sanctuary in 1997 but their introduction to fresh air and sunlight had to be slow.
To see daylight for first time in 30 years
This heartbreaking photo captures their first interaction with the outside world. And to think, Ninety-two percent of all drugs that pass animal testing fail the clinical trail phase after they prove ineffective or dangerous to humans. That means that any results that came out of torturing these guys was probably in vain because the likelihood of it working on humans is minuscule.
The torture is over, at least for these lucky few, and their reactions say more about the unethical nature of animal testing than any words ever could (the video was removed from my post).
Diaethria neglecta 89 butterfly
Amazingly, the nature itself has coded this beautiful butterfly with the number 89 on the wings! In fact, the traditional habitat of number 88 butterfly is in the forests in Bolivia, Peru, Ecuador, Colombia and Venezuela. Diaethria neglecta, known as 89 butterfly, has black, red and white patterns on the backsides of its wings. Meanwhile the front side is black with a metallic aqua green to blue hue.
Crystal river the most beautiful river in the world
In fact, Cano Cristales, or the Crystal river has various names – “The River of Five Colors,” “The Liquid Rainbow”, “the river that ran away from paradise”, or even “The Most Beautiful River in the World”. And all these names are due to the algae which produces colors – red, yellow, green and blue. Besides, the bottom of the river has a unique appearance. The colors shown in these pictures are absolutely real and there aren’t any photographic tricks at all. The mosses and algae covering the bed and rocks of this river appear as dull green and brown water plants. And the water level regulates the amount of sunlight reaching the plants. At certain times of the year, depending on the water level, the mosses ‘bloom’.
Lessons to learn from a dog
When loved ones come home, always run to greet them.
Allow the experience of fresh air and the wind in your face to be pure ecstasy.
Stretch before rising.
Run, romp, and play daily.
Thrive on attention and let people touch you.
Avoid biting when a simple growl will do.
On warm days, stop to lie on your back on the grass.
On hot days, drink lots of water and lie under a shady tree.
When you are happy, dance around and wag your entire body.
Delight in the simple joy of a long walk.
Never pretend to be something you’re not.
If you want lies buried, dig until you find it.
When someone is having a bad day, be silent, sit close by and nuzzle them gently.
Enjoy every moment of your day.
Handle every stressful situation like a dog. If you can’t eat it or play with it… Pee on it and walk away… just let it go… just in case I haven’t told you lately

Animals Make Us Human
“I believe that the best way to create good living conditions for any animal, whether it’s a captive animal living in a zoo, a farm animal or a pet, is to base animal welfare programs on the core emotion systems in the brain. My theory is that the environment animals live in should activate their positive emotions as much as possible, and not activate their negative emotions any more than necessary. If we get the animal’s emotions rights, we will have fewer problem behaviors… All animals and people have the same core emotion systems in the brain.” ― Temple Grandin, Animals Make Us Human: Creating the Best Life for Animals
