PINK elephant :)

My family recently came home from a holiday in the Kruger National Park, and we came across this little guy. He's very young, they estimate him to be only a month old, if even that, and as you can see, he's an albino elephant. Its a wonder he survived this long with the heat of the sun, as albinos are very sensitive to the sun, then we saw how his family care for him - they are fierce when it came to keeping him safe (we were charged several times if we got too close), and the sweetest of all - they pack mud all over him to protect from the sun when the days at its hottest.

His life expectancy isnt as high as other elephants, but if he continues to be cared for how he is being, and learns to put mud on himself later in life, he should live a great life. Plus, he's adorable!

Who said pink elephants don't exist? :P
