DescripciónPIC BY BARBARA NANNIG / CATERS NEWS - (PICTURED: Rare leucistic penguin spotted on Weddell Island in the Falklands, theyre often confused for Albino penguins, but suffer a similar problem where their feathers lack melanin, the pigmentation that produced black to dark brown colour) A rare albino-like penguin has been spotted in the Falklands Islands. The female Gentoo penguin has a condition called leucism meaning it appears with a coffee-coloured skin - affecting one in 10,000 of the species. Often confused for albinism, the peculiar penguin condition is Leucism which prevents any melanin, dark brown to black pigmentation, from being produced in its feathers. The penguin was spotted quietly guarding the nests of small Gentoo colony on Weddell Island, in the Falklands, last month.
