Amelanism

A zebra with orange stripes! Fascinating and beautiful! It’s not albino, because we now know: albinos are white and have red eyes. This zebra has orange stripes and blue eyes. It has amelanism. This word contains “melanin”, and these are the color pigments that albinos are lacking. In amelanism, they are only partially lacking. In fish, amphibians, reptiles and birds, it would be called xanthochromism. Find info and photos on the next page!
