A World of White!!

Uncover the World's Wonderfully White Animals!

White Is for Snowy Owl

Native to the arctic tundra, the snowy owl can sometimes be found roosting in arctic towns. The female while generally having more brown in their feathers then the male does, can lay anywhere from 1-3 or 5 eggs at a time. Their eggs hatch after 5 weeks and after another 5 weeks, the magical moment happens! They leave the nest. Awww!

Eternally Awake

Camels can survive for a large amount of time without food or water. Ever wonder why? Well contrary to popular belief, camels do not store water in their humps. They store fat from their food in them. This allows them to not eat for rather a long time. But being desert animals they can go for a while without water as well.
