Those Incredible White Giraffes

Never thought I would have to deal with leucist giraffes, but here they are. Incredibly rare with what appears to be only a handful sightings in the wild captured on film, white reticulated giraffes are pale in color thanks to a genetic condition called leucism. Unlike albinism, in leucism skin cells don’t produce pigmentation, but soft tissues, like dark eyes, do. Well, there’s white powder for you.
