5/7/2004: Unstriped zebra

Kenyan authorities are set to carry out further studies on this little one but it sure looks like a genetics problem. That there is your basic unstriped zebra calf. The folks there say they have no records of it ever happening before.

I've see those before. Over here, we call it a 'horse'.

What's strange is that judging from the second picture, the baby zebroid is striped; it's just that both colors are white.

And what's that in the first picture, the family's pet duck?

White <i>is</i> the new black.

I wish we could see its eyes...looks like an albino to me.

They were shooting an AFLAC commercial.

His muzzle looks kind of dark, no? Would be very pink, were he albino, I think.

Dang spiffy, though

For the movie Sheena, they wanted Tanya Roberts' character to be riding around on a zebra. But Zebras don't like it when you try to ride them. So instead, they got a white horse, and painted stripes on it.

Someone should throw a rope around his neck and drag him into the evolution thread.

I sure hope this isn't the African Prophecy Equivalent to the White Buffalo ...

Well, actually, it *is* pretty pinkish compared to the mother's muzzle.

I'm not sure I have this right, but don't zebras have white stripes? I seem to remember reading somewhere that zebras are born black, and develop the stripes later. If that's true, then this little white fella is truly unique....and he's so cuuuuute!

I see the stripes in the second picture as well...but check out his little muzzle...he looks like he's grinning, to me....wonder what he's thinking?
