“Beautiful! In exactly that place, Isola Bella, I was bitten by a white peacock. So lovely, but so mean,” one such user commented.
“Kind of reminds me of a phoenix (just that it is in white)” another user commented.
“I remember seeing a white peacock around 10 years ago. Never seen it fly though. It's beautiful” a third user commented.
White peacocks are an uncommon sub-species of blue peacocks with the Leucism gene mutation. Peacocks that are white in colour are born yellow and turn white as they get older. Partially leucism occurs in pied peacocks, resulting in colour loss in patches.Click for more trending news
