Skunk

Imagine you're in your yard, maybe the light is dim, and you spot what you think is a white cat. You go over to pet the nice kitty only to be greeted by the most foul-smelling spray you can imagine. This is the "danger" of albino skunks — they lack the trademark coloring that lets other creatures know to stay away.

Interesting side note: If you Google "albino skunk," you'll mostly get results about a music festival in South Carolina.
