There used to be a mostly albino robin that lived around my house one year; it was almost completely white save for some small grey and pink colourations on its head and chest that made me recognize it was indeed a robin.

My old college, University of Louisville, is known for having a population of white squirrels living on campus.
I can't remember now if they're truly albino or only leucistic, but either way, it was supposed to be good luck to see one before an exam! :-)

There’s a pure white wallaby at a zoo near my house - not sure if they’re leucistic or albino, or if there’s a difference

Sadly that's not albino robin that's actually a piebald robin ( at least according to your discription ) I don't wanna make myself look dumb so I'm not gonna try to explain what it is but if you look it up it is really pretty @razatharia

@redlego (you can copy paste if you don't wanna spell out my name or somthin)
@Redlego Looks like it's actually called Leucism, and I didn't know this was a thing until now haha. I technically wasn't wrong when I said it was mostly albino; it had red eyes and was almost purely white, however it did have a very small patch of pale colour, so it wasn't fully albino. Albino isn't the right term for it, I know that now, but I didn't earlier so I described it to the best of my abilities :)
