Here’s a strange looking beast.  This “Blue” Whitetail Buck was taken on Christmas Eve 2007 in Texas. The best explanation of his color so far is something called Luecism.  Leucism is a condition characterized by reduced pigmentation in animals and humans. Unlike albinism, it is caused by a reduction in all types of skin pigment, not just melanin.
