A giraffe calf with leucanism (rare genetic disorder). This is when the colour pigment is not working all that well, and you get an animal with partial (diluted) pigment. Sometimes, you will find a white animal and think it is an albino... Look at the eyes or nose, then, as they will still contain colour pigment. You can't always go on the 'pink eye' theory, as an albino animal, because it can also have light blue or green eyes, but never dark colours. ~ Crying Buffalo #albinoanimals
