An extremely rare snow white giraffe was recently spotted by Rangers from the Hirola Conservation Program in Garissa County, Kenya.
For sometime there had been rumors circulating of a white baby giraffe in the area and after a tip off the rangers finally managed to find the unique creature.
The snow white condition is called Leucism and is caused by a partial loss of pigmentation in the animal. It can happen to any animal and many different creatures have been discovered with this condition over the years but to see a snow white giraffe is a rare find.
There have been sightings of white giraffes in Tanzania’s Tarangire National park but this is the first time proper photos have been taken of these unusual creatures.
