The white peacock is even more spectacular than its colorful counterpart. Its lacy feathers make it look like royal and it definitely knows it. It's one of the most amazing animals because even without the distinctive colors it's still flashy and noticeable, which is why they're so colorful in the first place. Technically this peacock is not albino; it has a genetic mutation called leucism which causes the lack of pigmentation.
