Rare animals that took our breath away by unique coloring

1. Qizai, the only brown panda in the world

4-6

Pandas are associated with the colors black and white, but that doesn’t apply to Qizai, a 9-year-old giant panda. Qizai was artificially bred and is the only brown panda in the world, making him one of the rarest animals. Scientists attempted natural copulation for further research in 2018, but a natural mating between Qizai and a female panda failed.

2. Albino moose

5-7

Hans Nillson has been trying to find and spot an extremely rare and elusive Albino moose in Eda, Sweden for three years – and he finally managed to capture this beautiful and majestic animal on camera. A spectacular sight! “When I shot the video everything fell into place: the location, the light, and the calmness,” the man said to a local newspaper. “It was an experience to meet such a stately animal up close.”

3. Selfie pup

It’s not really the colors that make this pup stand out, but rather, the positioning of her black and white spots. As you can see, it looks like as if the cute four-footer has a selfie on her ear! Lucy – more commonly known as the ‘selfie pup’ – even has her own Instagram-account with almost 8,000 followers.

4. Transparent butterfly

7

This species of transparent butterflies is known as ‘greta oro’, and it’s extremely rare. You can usually spot them in Central-America. Their wings are transparent because their intervenous tissue is colorless and it makes for an amazing photo!

5. Two-hearted fur

This two-year-old Nigerian dwarf goat is absolutely adorable for all the right reasons. When you take a look at her fur, you’ll notice two large and beautiful hearts. Amazing and cute at the same time!

7. White alligator

12

This white paradox alligator is often mistaken for an albino alligator, but he’s actually a leucistic one. The two are similar and both conditions result in the animal having a dominantly white appearance. However, animals with leucism only have partial pigmentation loss and their eyes aren’t affected.

8.Opposite skunk

14

You never know what you’ll randomly spot on the street, which was certainly the case for the person who saw this unusual and rare skunk out of nowhere. This little guy was born with the opposite markings: he’s a white skunk with blank markings instead of the other way around. Nature can work in mysterious ways!

9. Tri-colored squirrel

15

This tri-colored squirrel is quite rare and can be mainly found in the Thai-Malay Peninsula as well as on a couple of smaller islands nearby. The species, also known as Prevost’s squirrels, have a distinctive black upper body and tail, white flanks and orange underparts. They’re even considered to be one of the most colorful rodent species around.

10.Panther chameleon

22

Of course, chameleons are known for this ability to change the colors of their scales, but the panther chameleon variety takes it up a notch. They’re quite rare and have a distinctive white line across their body. Aside from that single distinctive line, these animals can have an extremely colorful and wild appearance. Absolutely beautiful!

11. Black jaguar

23

t one point, the black jaguars were considered to be their own species by the indegenous people because of its rarity. The melanistic jaguar, also referred to as a ‘cat in black’, is a true sight to behold.

From albino to your standard stripes – these tigers show just how beautiful nature can be.
