An extremely rare polka dot baby zebra was spotted in Kenya.

Photographers managed to capture this photo in Kenya’s Masai Mara National Reserve.

This is the first known case of a zebra with a polka dot appearance like this area.

The polka dot appearance comes from a genetic disorder called pseudo-melanism where animals display an abnormality in their stripe pattern.

  1. Wow that is very shocking! And it’s the first of it’s kind. They should search for the baby zebra and when it has grown up they should try breed it for more polka doted zebras.

  4. i must say look at its tail its so skinny and small and ADORABLE, i hope we get more of these in the future, and i hope we can see them up close the zoo!

  5. Melanistic animals when bred still have their parents DNA so they cant just breed them to make more, because their is no such thing as a pure melanistic animal
