This stunning giraffe has not been photoshopped, she’s real! Omo, the 15 -month-old beauty whose skin seems as if it was bleached, is suffering from leucism. It’s a condition that results in a partial loss of pigmentation.
She was spotted in Tarangire National Park in Tanzania by Dr Derek Lee, founder and scientist at the Wild Nature Institute. “Omo appears to get along with the other giraffes, she has always been seen with a large group of usually coloured giraffe- they don’t seem to mind her different colouring, ” he explained.
“We and our partners are working on giraffe conservation and anti-poaching to assistance dedicate Omo and her relatives a better opportunity of survival. We hope that she lives a long life and that some day she has calves of her own.”
