You have seen images of many beautiful animals on Dosed. But this one is very rare.

This stunning giraffe has not been photoshopped, she’s real! The 15-month-old beauty named Omo, whose skin looks as if it was bleached, is suffering from leucism. It’s a condition that results in a partial loss of pigmentation.

“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,” Dr Derek Lee, founder and scientist at the Wild Nature Institute 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 one day she will have calves of her own.”
