White looking big giraffe was captured on camera with its calf in Garisa County, norther parts of Kenya.
Such white giraffes were once and only seen in Tangarawe, Tanzania which closely neighbors Kenya
Their appearance is a result of a genetic condition called leucism in which there is a partial loss of pigmentation.
Unlike albinism, it is caused by reduction in multiple types of pigment, not just melanin.
