Albino Buffalo Spotted In The Wild

Why are mutated or disfigured animals so much cuter than normally developed ones? Dare we say it’s some sort of “runt syndrome?” For the first time in the wilds of Kenya, park rangers of Hellsgate National Park have spotted and photographed an adorably ugly albino buffalo.

Park officials say that the albino’s light coat will make the buffalo more noticeable to predators. The local Maasai community associates albinism with bad omens. *sigh* The risks of being adorable.

  1. An albino buffalo may well have been sighted but the calf pictured here is not it. Many buffalo calves are colored like this specimen when they are born and turn the more conventional brown or black color as they mature. Idiot.
