This phenomenon (images at http://www.negaresa.org/science/wp-content/uploads/2017/02/albino-animals.png) comes from the Science GSE Phenomena Bank of the Georgia Science Teachers Association. The images provided show a variety of species that are born without pigment. These represent genetic mutations of albinism as well as a recessive trait, leucism, as seen with white tigers. This phenomenon could stimulate the following driving questions: How are traits passed down from parent to offsprings? Did both, one, or none of the parents lack pigment? Are these the results of mutations in the genetic code? How could offspring have a trait that their parents do not possess? What is the chance of an organism exhibiting albinism?
