Ritad, I would say it looks very 'white' because of the lighting, but it is not an albino. I am interested to hear what others think.

I also think the light makes it look lighter than it is and also the dark wildebeest next to it also forms a big contrast

Would anyone know if this fellow is a known tusker? :hmz: 8) 8)


Could be a Tusker Mel, but it will be difficult to identify because it was taken in the dark.
