WHY THESE GIRAFFES ARE COMPLETELY WHITE
With their elongated necks and bright bodies, it’s hard to miss a white giraffe, especially when there are two.
A white female and baby giraffe were first spotted on a reserve (name withheld) in Kenya in early August by rangers
While many have been quick to label the giraffe as albino, it likely suffers from a genetic condition called leucism, which inhibits skin cells from producing pigment but allows other organs, like eyes, to be dark colored. Albinism, a congenital condition, inhibits the body from producing pigment in all organs, and animals with this condition often have pink eyes.
