Albino fawn

This is the albino fawn I got a picture of several years ago in the same general area as the buck from the previous page. I do think that might be the buck with the albino gene, but could be others also. It's such a large area that I still get many deer that I have never seen before.

This is actually a color phase known as a "piebald" deer. It is due to a recessive trait that must be carried by both parents.

See this website for a bit of information on piebald deer at the Patuxent Wildlife Research Center.
