Actual, albino humans do not necessarily have red hair. There are two types of albinism in humans, one where the skin, hair, and eyes lack pigments, and one where simply the eyes lack pigments. They're not freaky. You just have to get used to their appearance. So. No, not all albinos have red hair, and in no way do all albino animals have to be red. In most species, any one with red eyes is an albino. I once saw an albino snake with red eyes and he was yellow. This all happens because of genetics. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Albinism This should explain it to you.

My best friend is an albino from Laaperanta. Cool guy, he's just like any other normal person...nothing special about his appearance. Don't be racists...

You might have heard about genes. They r primarily of two kinds.. *Dominant (D) & recessive(r). Any human (other animals too)being for each character (e.g.skin color,hair color,eye color etc.)has genes in pairs like *DD *Dr *rr If the gene controlling skin color appears in combination of rr...it results in albino. For red hair too genes are at work.In albanism hairs r not always red, they may be white or golden too. Its due to inheritance as stated above or mutation in genes (Mutation is irrevesible change in gene.
