Leucism (/ˈljuːkɪzəm/; or /ˈluːsɪzəm/) is a condition in which there is partial loss of pigmentation in an animal resulting in white, pale, or patchy coloration of the skin, hair, feathers, scales or cuticle, but not the eyes. Unlike albinism, it is caused by a reduction in multiple types of pigment, not just melanin.
a big thankyou to all those wonderful people that have donated to help our 300 + babies that have been coming in over the last two weeks so many have died which is sad but we have been able to save hundreds as well i am introducing one very special little bat we rescued him last week but it was unsure as to his future so we held off posting enjoy a snap of our boy over the next week we will be posting updates along with a naming competition he is a little grey headed flying fox like all his siblings but he has the most wonderful markings enjoy and watch this space.
Full view of our boy note the pigmentation on wings one is in the shape of a heart so start thinking names — at Australian Bat Clinic.
