What a splendid animal, and so very lucky to have lived so long. Usually these miscolored animals live short lives since they don't have the abliity to blend in. Thank you for sharing his wonderful giraffe.

This giraffe may not be a true albino but certainly is white.
Let us hope that some ignorant hunter does not come along and

Giraffes worldwide are becoming very endangered. If I remember correctly,
two species of giraffes have gone extinct.

Ty, Barb.

He or She, is a beautiful creature...I just hope and pray that they leave it alone, and don't try to capture it for some God forsaken Zoo, or worse kill it...i hope and pray for God's blessings and protection for this wonderful creature...
