White Stag

Wanted to know more about White Stag. It is a mythical and ghostly creature, from the family of the red deer species, can be found in the wilds of the Scottish Highlands. White stags are seen as a magical and powerful force in many mythologies.

The animal's ghostly glow comes from a recessive gene which causes leucism, a condition which reduces the normal brown coloring in hair and skin. They are not albinos, which have red eyes due to lack of pigment.

In Celtic traditions, white stags represent messengers from the afterlife.

It is also said that for those who set eyes on the animal, a momentous moment is near.
