A Rare White Giraffe Was Spotted In Tanzania

Not everything in nature is the same.

We often forget this because a lot of things in nature look similar, but that doesn’t mean it looks the same. 

Take two leaves for example, while they both look similar they both have differences that make them stand apart from the other. No two things are the same. There will always be differences.

Nature is an incredible gift. It never fails to amaze me.

We’re surrounded by it all the time and yet we often chose to ignore it.

This is sad because the beauty of nature doesn’t happen over night. It takes years, decades, even centuries for it to become the way we see it.

Nature is even slowly changing itself as we speak. It’s truly remarkable!

Just when I think I’ve seen everything there is to see,  something will come out of nowhere and surprise me. If you ever have a particularly down day or lack in inspiration, I implore you to just take a walk and surround yourself with as much nature as possible.

It will do something to you.

The stunning giraffe photographed in the images below hasn’t photoshopped, she’s actually real!

The cute giraffe’s name is Omo, the 15-month-old beauty whose skin looks as if it was bleached, is actually suffering from leucism.

Leucism is a condition that results in a partial loss of pigmentation.

The gorgeous creature was spotted in  Tarangire National Park in Tanzania by Dr Derek Lee, founder and scientist at the Wild Nature Institute.

“Omo appears to get along with the other giraffes, she has always been seen with a large group of normally coloured giraffe – they don’t seem to mind her different colouring,” he explained.

“We and our partners are working on giraffe conservation and anti-poaching to help give Omo and her relatives a better chance of survival. We hope that she lives a long life and that some day she has calves of her own.”

What an incredible creature, and to think this incredible transformation is all down to nature and the complexity that is DNA and genetic mutation.

It’s incredibly fascinating and complex.

What do you think about this remarkable creature, Isn’t it simply beautiful?
