A remarkable 5-month-old black bear cub with cream-colored fur has been spotted in British Columbia with its commonly colored mother.
The rare sight was seen and photographed by Arthur De Jong, who is an environmental planning manager.
The cub was spotted playing with its mother on the Whistler-Blackcomb mountain and has scientists scratching their heads.
They believe it is either an albino bear or a spirit bear. Both of these outcomes relate to a genetic mutation affecting their pigmentation.
But until someone sees if its eyes are pink like an albino’s, or not, we cannot tell for sure.
