Extremely Rare White Giraffe With Ginger Mane Spotted In Tanzania


Omo the giraffe is fifteen months old. She has survived her first year despite being born with leucism – a condition which means only some of her skin cells can make pigment, which gives her almost white skin. She was photographed by Dr Derek Lee, founder and scientist at the Wild Nature Institute, whilst she was roaming the Tarangire National Park, in Tanzania.

Dr Lee said, “Omo appears to get along with the other giraffes, she has always been seen with a large group of normally coloured giraffe – they don’t seem to mind her different colouring. Omo is now 15 months old – she survived her first year as a small calf, which is the most dangerous time for a young giraffe due to lion, leopard and hyena preying on them.”
