I saw this albino kudu between Tshokwane and Satara back in 1984.

Imagine a white lion taking down a white kudu - the ultimate 'kill'!

Imagine getting that photo!!

:big_eyes: nice didn't think that kudu would have made it that far because he will be very noticeable for any predator

I saw an albino baby zebra last year (can't remember where in Kruger exactly (would have been somewhere between satara and mopani) but don't have a pic.

It was only a few days old and was white with a hint of pale grey stripes. I doubt it would have survived for long! It would glow in the dark and be cat food

I have mentioned to one or 2 forumites. but for those of you interested.

We spotted a 5 lions 2 males, bigger then the lower sabie gents, and 3 females. one of the was a white female, i have seen a pic of her on the forum(had no camera, stopped 2 other cars but they didn't have cameras either.) they were about 2 m in the bush, 600m from shimangaweni(spelling) water hole, wednesday 28 october around 14:00.

RobertT saw the 2 males earlier on a kill but not the females.

one of the cars i stopped mentioned he had seen them earlier and also thought she was a timbavati white, and now he was sure.

if you seen the pic of the female on the forum you'll see she isn't snow white like an albino, but with those males around i doubt any other lion would dare try anything with her
