Albino Zebra

Took these photos of one at Girivane last year in June.
The Zebra was lighter and had light brown eyes...it stood out from the others....

Wow oumie that is a good looking zebra :D

Not sure it is albino - but definitely some colour variation there. You might find some interesting reading here White, Albino and Leucistic Mammals

Thanks so much for posting - very interesting :thumbs_up:

When I saw the difference in colour in your trip report, I thought it was just the light while the picture was taken Oumie! But now I have also noticed the colour of his eyes! I think he is beautiful! :clap: :clap:
