Leucistic giraffe alive and well in Tarangire


Last year Wild Nature Institute reported a sighting of a beautiful leucistic giraffe calf in Tarangire National Park in Tanzania. Her body surface cells are not capable of making pigment, but she is not an albino.

We were lucky enough to see her again this January, almost exactly one year later. We are thrilled that she is still alive and well. Below are photos of the leucistic giraffe calf, then and now. A local lodge guide christened her Omo, after a popular brand of detergent here.
