A giraffe in Kenya has developed a skin condition that has never been witnessed before in his kind.

According to Zoe Muller, a biologist who has been documenting the unique case of the giraffe for almost seven years now, the male giraffe living in the Soysambu Conservancy, Kenya is the first wild giraffe to be diagnosed with vitiligo, a skin condition characterized by white patches on the skin.

Muller first visited the Conservancy in 2009. After taking photos of the giraffe, she noticed something strange about the giraffe's color.
