A white baboon is a rare sight indeed, and capturing one on video is a never-to-be-repeated opportunity. This baby leucistic baboon was spotted during a game drive in Zambia’s South Luangwa National Park.
This tiny baby’s eyes were normally coloured, leading observers to the conclusion that he was leucistic and not an albino. For more information on the difference between the two conditions, read this post: The Black and White of African Wildlife Explained.
