Project Noah Fact of the Day: Albinism in biology is the congenital absence of any pigmentation or coloration in a person, animal or plant, resulting in white hair and pink eyes. Albino animals have characteristic pink or red eyes because the lack of pigment in the iris allows the blood vessels of the retina to be visible.
