Conservation Rangers were left stunned after the discovery of an extremely rare white giraffe and her calf. Rumors had circulated of a white giraffe and her baby in a wildlife conservation park in Kenya, but rangers finally got to see the real thing after they received a tip.
The mother giraffe and her calf have leucism, meaning their skin cells are incapable of making pigment. They are not a pure white and don’t have red/pink eyes, like an albino animal would have.
The giraffes were spotted by the Hirola Conservation Program in Kenya. The group predominantly works to save the world’s most endangered antelope – the hirola – which share the savannahs and open woodlands where the giraffes forage.
Watch and share this incredibly rare sighting with your friends and family.
It’s not the first time white giraffes have been spotted in Africa. Omo is a white giraffe who lives in Tarangire National Park in Tanzania. She is leucistic too.
