One in a Zillion Penguin Discovered

As a mom of a houseful of penguin fanatics, I love this:

All Black Penguin Discovered

A "one in a zillion" king penguin is spotted near Antarctica with a bizarre mutation, biologists say that the animal has lost control of its pigmentation, an occurrence that is extremely rare.
The picture at the link is cool.

That's pretty cool.

A couple of us in our neighborhood over the course of several months saw another animal breaking the color conventions. The first night I saw it, it happened to be Halloween. I was stone cold sober when I came around the corner and saw an all white deer. I believe she was a doe, and she had a fawn with her - the fawn had typical deer coloration.
