Skin and hair colors

Hi I just noticed that the eye color of mammals and humans seem to have a wider range of colors than their own skin and fur.
So I m wondering can mammals if possible produce purple hair or green skin the same way as the eyes of some animals?

Blue Skin is well known in some mammals like the Mandrill and some mammals.
Discuss.
