Brights Zoo in Limestone, Tennessee, is celebrating an extraordinary birth!
According to Travel Awaits, the zoo welcomed a baby giraffe that’s certainly unique. Reticulated giraffes are known for their distinctive patterned coat, but the baby giraffe was born with a solid brown coat.
The zoo believes the calf may be the world’s only living solid-colored reticulated giraffe.
The zoo’s director, David Bright, said staff had contacted zoo professionals across the country inquiring about how rare the giraffe could be. So far, zoo officials say the only record of a reticulated giraffe being born without spots was in Japan in the 1970s, NPR reports.
