Galapagos now has another inhabitant: a white penguin

A penguin considered "rare" because of its white colour was discovered in the national park of Galapagos, which has unique flora and fauna in the world.

Parque Galápagos states that "This case could be a genetic condition known as leucism that produces a partial loss of pigmentation in the animals' plumage or coat while maintaining the normal colour of their eyes, which differentiates them from albinos,".
