Rare albino seal pup spotted in Far East Russia

RareAlbinoFurSealPup_2_Tyuleny-Island-Se

NOAA Fisheries Affiliate Vladimir Burkanov discovered an albino fur seal on a recent research trip to the remote island of Tyuleny in the Sea of Okhotsk, Russia.  

The ginger-furred, blue-eyed seal, named Ugly Duckling by Burkanov, would have poor eyesight, researchers say, which may hamper its survival prospects.

The condition the seal has is albinism. It is a hereditary abnormality that can occur in animals and humans. The cause of this is a change in DNA. Your body does not produce enough melanin, a type of dye. This melanin ensures that color is present in your skin, hair and eyes. Usually people or animals with albinism have a light skin, eye and / or hair color, but this is different for everyone..

 “It will be interesting to see if we are able to resight the animal again when we survey the rookery next June.”

Poor baby, that was the first thing that came to my mind... He just stands out too much and I don't think it's going to be a good thing. 😕 (but he's cute)

exactly...this is honestly one of the few times in my life where I think I support him being snatched and put in a animal sanctuary or something because I really fear that he won't make it out in the wild for too long :(
