Is leucism a form of albinism?

Asked by Dax Trejo

Vertebrates with albinism are not only white (or sometimes pale yellowish) in color but they also have very pale eyes, often pink or red in color as the blood vessels show through. … Leucism is only a partial loss of pigmentation, which can make the animal have white or patchily colored skin, hair, or feathers.
