A white giraffe has been spotted roaming around Tarangire National Park, in Tanzania, along with the rest of her herd - who don't seem to be bothered about her unusual coloring.

Ecologist Dr. Derek Lee, founder and scientist at the Wild Nature Institute, caught the pale giraffe on camera. He estimates her to be about 15 months old.

Lee told the Daily Mail that "Omo" the giraffe is leucistic - a genetic condition where "many of the skin cells are incapable of making a pigment but some are, so she is pale – but not pure white with red or blue eyes as a true albino would be."

But that abnormality makes her so special and beautiful.
