A researcher in Africa has finally spotted the rare white giraffe that he's been seeking for twelve years, and he's got a photograph to prove it.
Charles Foley, a Wildlife Conservation Society (WCS) researcher, first heard rumors of the white giraffe in 1993 when he was working in Tanzania's Tarangire National Park doing research on savanna elephants.
Intrigued, Foley set out to find the animal, but by the next year, the sightings had stopped coming in.
"I assumed it had died, either at the hand of man or best," he said. "I never stopped looking though."
Foley's persistence paid off this summer. While conducting a routine aerial survey of a group of the park's elephants, he spotted a white speck in the distance.

It could be fake, look at its legs, they aren't white. Most probably a poor photoshop job, if it was an albino its legs would be white as well.
"The proof is there to see — a mostly white giraffe with small dark blotches on its body," Foley said. "Only the bottom half of its legs were the more traditional brown color."

the girraff is NOT a albino . If you look close at the photo you can see the BLACK spots all girraffs have and this white girraff has them as well.
Making it truly white and NOT albino .
