For whitetailed deer, one of the rarest variations of all is color. The ghost deer is a whitetailed deer, colored completely white due to a lack of melanin—a natural pigment found in most organisms. It’s a rare recessive gene; and, like humans, only about one out of 20,000 mammals are albino. “The Private Life of Deer” airs Wednesday, November 27 at 10/9c on PBS (check local listings).
