This cute little white owl has been making quite a splash on the internet because of its fairy-tale-like appearance.
Many people thought it was fake, but this extraordinary-looking bird is real.
The owl suffers from albinism, meaning it was born with no melanin, the chemical that gives its body color, even the eyes.
In this case, this screech owl’s eyes are red, which is typical for albino animals.
The eyes appear red because we can see straight through their irises to the blood vessels inside them.
Isn’t he gorgeous?
