Snow White Giraffe Spotted Roaming The Plains Of Kenya

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.
