Enchanting Snowy White Giraffes Filmed In Kenya
TreeHugger reports that the giraffes were spotted in an area where HCP, a Kenya-based non-governmental organization, and Rainforest Trust are protecting the territory for hirola antelope. After hearing about the giraffes’ existence from local villagers, HCP rangers rushed to the scene to glimpse the animals themselves.
Once they caught sight of the mother and her baby, the adult female paced back and forth a few yards from them. This signaled the juvenile giraffe to hide in the bushes. According to HCP, this is common behavior exhibited by mothers in the wild seeking to protect their young.“Early june this year, reports of a white baby giraffe and its mother were reported to us by the rangers who got the report from one of the villagers adjacent to the Ishaqbini conservancy. We hurriedly headed to the scene as soon as we got the news. And lo! There, right in front of us, was the so hyped ‘white giraffe’ of Ishaqbini conservancy!”
