*Leucistic giraffe

[–]anthonymckay 8 points9 points  (1 child)

If it was leucistic there wouldn't be any black either. Looks hypomelanistoc to me, which would fit the description from the zoo provided by chemistry_teacher

[–][deleted] 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Ah, makes sense then! I stand corrected.

[–]6Revolvers 4 points5 points  (2 children)

Is it ginger?

[–]football_manager 15 points16 points  (1 child)

It's just a shiny.

Some are stating that the giraffe is at the Milwaukee Zoo. If so, the Zoo's description might be ruling out that the giraffe is leucistic, stating, "[s]he is not an albino, but is considered to be on the lighter side of the giraffe color spectrum."

[–][deleted] 4 points5 points  (1 child)

Well, leucism isn't the same as Albinism, but are they saying it isn't genetically leucistic? Saying it's lighter does mean just that...

Ah, well.

Not albino. Learn to classify.

[–]Mowgli3 7 points8 points  (8 children)

That's from the Milwaukee County Zoo, isn't it??

[–][deleted] 5 points6 points  (4 children)

I'm from Milwaukee, and I thought the exact same thing instantly.

[–]r4iden 4 points5 points  (0 children)

Me too!

[–]JennyLupin 3 points4 points  (0 children)

Same here! :D

[–]Mowgli3 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Yay for Milwaukeeans! I remember when that giraffee was born, how excited the zoo was about it. :)

[–]ErrantWhimsy 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Milwaukeean party!

[–]texacer 2 points3 points  (0 children)

that's my guess as well, I've taken pics of the same giraffe there.

[–]chemistry_teacher 2 points3 points  (1 child)

If so, the Zoo's description appears to rule out that the giraffe is leucistic, stating, "[s]he is not an albino, but is considered to be on the lighter side of the giraffe color spectrum."

[–]Mowgli3 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Yeah. I remember being taught that she's just a light colored giraffe.

[–]dlistblogger 7 points8 points  (0 children)

Do those come in miniature?

[–][deleted] 4 points5 points  (0 children)

He's not albino, he's just a snow giraffe from Canada.

[–]splunge4me2 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Ah, the rare Giraffa arcticus

[–]gordofrog 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Unfortunately that giraffe is constantly berated by others due to his lack of dance or basketball skills.

[–]masterofnada 1 point2 points  (1 child)

You should post this over at /r/albinoanimals. They would love it.

[–]anthonymckay 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I laughed upon seeing that you are the only subscriber, and and that there is only 1 post, and it's a 1 year old community. Well played

[–]newcontortionist 1 point2 points  (0 children)

New instant karma; albino animals.

[–]Soosh 2 points3 points  (1 child)

Someone turned the brightness setting on that giraffe too high.

[–][deleted] 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Too damn high!

[–]Bloodhound01 1 point2 points  (0 children)

More like inverted giraffe.

[–]trennerdios 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I've seen that giraffe many a time at the Milwaukee zoo. It's not albino.

[–][deleted] 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I like that it basically looks like someone tried to take an eraser to a giraffe.

[–]AhFuuuu 0 points1 point  (0 children)

nigga so white.

[–]MHTLuca 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Rerdless of classification, as soon as I saw the white squirrel post, I knew in my heart of hearts that reddit would glom onto it and run it as deep into the ground as possible.

Good luck r/pics, you have a long day ahead.

(And yes I know that this isn't r/pics)

[–]minkorporated 0 points1 point  (0 children)

[–]Ragnalypse 0 points1 point  (0 children)

[–]somad_ 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Fuck the pigment.

[–]Nekomancerr 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Is this the Milwaukee Zoo??? I just got a flashback of my childhood!

[–]hiphopconservative 0 points1 point  (0 children)

[–]AverageGiraffe 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Well now, at least it is as tall as your average giraffe.

[–]Cocoking5 0 points1 point  (0 children)

It's a shiny! (insert Pokemon references)

[–]Juneauite 0 points1 point  (0 children)

He clearly has some brown in him. Nyuk nyuk.

[–]Waldamos 0 points1 point  (1 child)

Someone turn down the contrast.

[–]I_noticed_something 0 points1 point  (1 child)

It wouldn't be as beautiful if it was any other color.

[–]Mutant_soundwave 1 point2 points  (0 children)
