Abstract: Anomalous colourations occur in many tropical vertebrates. However, they are considered rare in wild populations, with very few records for the majority of animal taxa. We report two new cases of anomalous colouration in mammals. Additionally, we compiled all published cases about anomalous pigmentation registered in Neotropical mammals, throughout a comprehensive review of peer reviewed articles between 1950 and 2010. Every record was classified as albinism, leucism, piebaldism or eventually as undetermined p… Show more

“…Whilst the exact genes responsible for leucism have not been identified (Fertl & Rosel 2002;Summers 2009;Abreu et al 2013), the mutation is known to be recessive (Hoekstra 2006). The relative genetic (Boyd 1993, Hofmeyr et al 2005b.…”

“…Except for the report of the occurrence in pinniped species (Acevedo & Aguayo 2008;Abreu et al 2013), anomalous colors in other Carnivora is known in Eira barbara (Trolle 2003;Reis et al 2005;Tortato & Althoff 2007), in Nasua narica (Silva-Caballero et al 2014), and in Lontra longicaudis (Arriaga-Flores et al 2016).…”

“…In a recent study, 198 cases of abnormal coloration in 26 Neotropical mammal species was reported (Abreu et al 2013), with cases being much more common in cetaceans, chiropterans and rodents (Pessôa & Reis 1995;Fertl et al 2004;Abreu et al 2013, Neves et al 2014. Except for the report of the occurrence in pinniped species (Acevedo & Aguayo 2008;Abreu et al 2013), anomalous colors in other Carnivora is known in Eira barbara (Trolle 2003;Reis et al 2005;Tortato & Althoff 2007), in Nasua narica (Silva-Caballero et al 2014), and in Lontra longicaudis (Arriaga-Flores et al 2016).…”

“…Albinism is considered a rare event on wild animals, and it has rarely been reported on such creatures (Abreu et al, 2013). It is a natural genetic variation of recessive and mutational order caused by a deficit in melanin production (Walter, 1938).…”
