Visitors to Argonne National Laboratory-East are sometimes startled by the white deer roaming the site and occasionally speculate on the nature of the experiment that produced their unusual coloring.

While interesting, its pretty meaningless. Just like the 'white buffalos'. Recently, a white buffalo was born, supposedly that means some native prophecy is about to be fufiled. Thing is, there are often white buffalos, red cows, etc etc. A melanic deer or an albino buffalo, its not prophetic, its to be expected.

That's true. I don't know about deer, but kittens' eyes are blue when they first
open, and then gradually change color over several weeks.
About the white buffalo, I think I read or heard some time back that its coat
had changed color and was no longer white. I wonder what that is supposed to mean, if anything. I mean, seeing as how the white buffalo is SUPPOSED to be
part of an Indian prophesy. I wonder there really is such an Indian prophesy
going back hundreds of years (and can be demonstrated as such), or something that somebody cobbled together in more recent times. Because so many Indian tribal cultures and beliefs were practically wiped out, a lot of people are
now trying to re-create them, many from next to nothing, and some of them get
a lot of mysticism and religious beliefs from other tribes and Eastern religion and
a little from here and a little from there... of course, what else can they do?...but
I often wonder if the end result is something their ancestors wouldn't recognize.
