In what animal experts say is an extremely rare event, a puppy has been born in Italy with green fur.
Owner Cristian Mallocci says the dog was among a litter of seven born this week in Sardinia, but was the only one with a green tint to his fur.
And of course, the little guy was immediately named Pistachio,
Animal experts say the green color happens when a light-colored puppy comes in contact with a green pigment called Biliverdin in the womb.
However, much to my disappointment, the color usually fades as the animal gets older.
Coincidentally, a lime green German Shepherd (later named Hulk) was born in North Carolina earlier this year.
