These gorgeous stags are actually red deer or fallow deer who are suffering from a condition known as leucism that causes its hair and skin to lose its natural color. While these animals are mostly thought to be mythological creatures who appear in everything from Hungarian mythology to Harry Potter, they can actually be seen all over the world, you just have to keep your eyes peeled.

There aren’t a lot of animals with leucism in the wild, like albino animals their lack of pigmentation doesn’t do them any favors with predators. Still, some of these animals manage to survive even without their ability to blend in.

These proud harpy eagles, whose scientific name is the harpia harpyja can found from southern Mexico all the way up through Central and South America and even into northern Argentina, although their homes are being threatened by deforestation. While they grow up to 3.5 feet in length, their rear talons reach about 3-4 inches long, which is the same size as a grizzly bear’s.

Harpy eagles are very protective of their young, and they continue to bring fresh green twigs and branches to their nest after their offspring are born in order to keep them cool and safe from parasitic insects.
