Magical, Ghost-White Giraffes Spotted In The Wild, And They’re A Mystery

A rare white giraffe and her baby were seen on protected lands in Garissa County, Kenya, and they are a special sight to behold.

The ghost-white giraffes have a genetic condition called leucism which causes a partial loss of skin pigmentation. The condition may allow some outlines of a giraffe’s original patterns to show causing some spots to still be visible.

White giraffes were first spotted in the wild in 2016, and the sightings have happened a couple more time since then. Why? It’s a mystery.

But one thing is for sure — we never know what mother nature may reveal to us.
