Extremely Rare White Giraffes Spotted And Videotaped In Kenya

International News, News

Two giraffes belonging to an extremely rare breed called “Reticulated Giraffes” have been spotted and captured on video in Ishaqbini Conservancy in Kenya. The giraffes are affected by a hereditary genetic condition called leucism which causes them to lack skin pigmentation. It is different from albinism as leucism only affects the skin color and not the eye color.

The Reticulated Giraffes Spotted At The Ishaqbini Conservancy

The video shows a mother giraffe and her calf, both extremely calm in the presence of the humans. The mother signals the calf to hide behind her. The conservancy is maintained by Hirola Conservation Programme and it is setup to conserve the Hirola antelope, the most threatened antelope in the world. Before this incident, only two confirmed sightings of white giraffes have occurred, once in Tanzania and the other in the same conservancy. There are only about 8,500 white giraffes left in the wild.
