A stunning white snake was found in Northern Territory, Australia. The slaty-grey snake, usually dark brown in color, was born with an ‘incredibly rare genetic mutation’, according to Territory Wildlife Park.
The snake was rescued from the wild and handed over to the park by a local. Slaty-grey snakes are non-venomous and native to Australia.
The black eyes of the reptile prove that it is leucistic since albino animals have pink eyes.
The non-venomous snake was rescued while being attacked by a dog. Territory Wildlife Park says it will now be put on display.
According to Darwin Snake Catchers, it is interesting that the snake survived into adulthood, as its lack of coloring provides no camouflage, making it an easy target for predators.
