Is There Really a Pink Elephant

You may not have ever seen a pink elephant; however, even though it does not happen a lot, there are pink elephants in nature. There are reasons why some elephants are pink in color. This condition occurs extremely rarely, and it can be found in the African elephant. There are scientists that believe that this condition is actually albinism in the elephant. There is a slim chance for albino elephants to survive because of the bright sun that is in Africa. The sun causes a lot of problems for any albino animals in this area because it can cause blindness as well as a list of other skin problems. This is what makes it difficult for pink elephants to be able to survive in their natural habitat.
