There were some rumours among the locals regarding the giraffes presence. But only after few months the staff was able to caught the remarkable moment on camera.

Despite their inability to produce their traditional colorful pigment, these giraffes and other animals suffering from leucism don’t have any genetic disadvantages to their survival.

According to the Giraffe Conservation Foundation, more than half of all giraffes don’t make it past six months of age. Most of them are targeted by predators as lions and hyenas.
