beige penguin

Scientists have come across this adorable little leucistic Adelie penguin. He’s not quite albino, because he still has some pigment, but his beige color doesn’t help him much. Apparently the other penguins pick on him, and he hasn’t been able to find a mate yet. This is the first light-colored Adelie penguin recorded, since predators usually easily pick them off from the huge crowd.
