Since most species of plants and animals can be albinos, is this rare for monarchs because I have never seen one. If there are, what do they look like?

WOW! That would be an awesome sight to see!!! But I wonder how long such a monarch would live? Isn't it the bright color orange that identifies the monarch as toxic and wards of predators ?

Good point - that's probably one reason that the white mutation isn't more common...
