Fascinating and intriguing. I remember seeing an albino sparrow. Nature is always fascinating.

Thanks for posting Cher. It is very attractive and I hope no one tries to capture it or do it harm.

Jackals are bold, cunning and swift, which is why they're among my favorites. BUT...this poor animal has some serious problems....being visible at all times won't help it!
