This amazing very rare African giraffe doesn’t have to stick her neck out to get noticed!
A 15-month-old naturally snow white giraffe called Omo is catching the eye at the Tarangire National Park in Tanzania for her pale white coat shade. A picture of her was snapped this month by the Wild Nature Institute, a North Carolina nonprofit run by a pair of wildlife biologists. Her markings are also much more faint and less distinct than normally colored giraffes.
She was last spotted around the same time in 2015.
Scientist Derek Lee told NBC News that Omo is extremely rare — only the second recording of a white giraffe in Tarangire over the past 20 years. Tanzania’s sixth-largest national park has some 3,000 of the mammals, known for their long necks and leopard-like spots.
