Normally in Blackbucks adult males are dark brown to velvet black with white undersides while females and young are fawn or tan above and white below. Now have you ever heard of The White Buck also known as Albino Blackbuck? The animal looks fully white due to the lack of melanin in their skin. Albinism in blackbucks is not a common sight. One in a thousand, is when an albino blackbuck is born. Their uniqueness in the appearance is one of their biggest curse too as they are easily spotted by predators & hunted.
