In humans, a full albino will have a white or very light skin, pink irises of the eye, and hair which is white, cream-colored, or even yellowish.  In other mammals which are full albinos, the skin will be pinkish, the hair will be white, and the irises of the eye will be pink.  Partial albinos may have normal coloration on any of these features, but at least one of them will be the same as on a full albino.




Human albinos: A Caucasian child and two African children.
