During the 19th century, the approach to albino animals was to shoot and taxidermise them. Many natural history museums have albino animals, particularly birds, in their collections. The taxidermised specimens on this page come from an age when animals were preserved for posterity as taxidermy specimens rather than conserved in the wild. This specimen is displayed at Rothschild Zoological Museum, Tring, England.
Albino American Black Bear (the American Black Bear also has a white colour morph and since this speciment has dark eyes, it may be the white morph rather than a true albino)
