    When I took biology, there weren't as many species and the gene pool was much shallower.

    I will smash your face into a car windshield and then take your mother, Dorothy Mantooth, out to a nice seafood dinner and never call her again!

    Tell me about it, this morning, I woke up and I shit a squirrel, but what I can't get is the damn thing is still alive. So now, I've got a shit covered squirrel running around my office and I don't know what to name it.

    If both parents were albino (which means they carry 2 recessive genes) then 100% of the offspring would be albino.

    If one parent was albino and the other carried 1 recessive albino gene, then 50% would be albino.

    The odds are that one of thier parents was an albino.

    I don't know how rare the albino gene is, but the deer in the background of the picture, which may be a parent, does not appear to be albino. True, if one parent is albino and the other carries the recessive gene, half of the kids would be albino. If either one of the parents does not carry the recessive gene, none of the offspring could be albino (unless Mama was fooling around).

    While finding the first albino deer may be very rare, finding a second in the same area should become significantly less rare. The existence of the first means that there are, at least, one male and female carrier in the area, so it would seem the odds of a second albino would be lower.
