Do you recall the time in July when the rare pale white tiger in southern India was captured on film for the first time?

The white tiger sure was a beautiful sight to see.

“It was raining on and off,” photographer Nilanjan Ray wrote in an email to Fox News, describing the trip. “The rain had stopped for a few minutes, and the sun was about to come out. I was driving, when after a turn, we suddenly saw something that looked like a tiger (this one looked normal) walking on the road, maybe 200++ feet away. After a few seconds it ran up the hillside and vanished.”

Experts say the pale tiger was different from the average white tiger we usually see. This tiger actually has a genetic mutation that causes color morphism in the skin.

Recently in Kenya, another white majestic creature was spotted for the first time ever before.

From foxnews:

A pair of rare pale giraffes were spotted in Kenya and captured on film for the first time ever.

The giraffes, a mother and its child, have white skin due to a condition known as lueucism. The condition prevents pigmentation in skin cells and causes skin to turn white and pale.

The giraffes were filmed walking around the Ishaqbini Hirola Conservacy in Kenya’s Garissa county. Several times during the video, the mother giraffe appears to recognize she is being filmed and looks directly at the camera.

In a blog post, Hirola Conservancy said this was the first time the white giraffes had been spotted by a number of its community rangers. The post also noted that the giraffes were first reported by a local villager.

“The mother kept pacing back and forth a few yards in front of us while signalling the baby giraffe to hide behind the bushes,” the post read.

White giraffes have been spotted twice before. In January 2016, the first report of a white giraffe came from Tarangire National park, Tanzania. The second time was in March of 2016 in Ishaqbini conservancy, Garissa county, Kenya.

This is the first time the creatures are believed to have ever been captured on v
