It is estimated that for every 10, 000 newborn mammals on the planet, there is one albino. Albinism - a fairly rare phenomenon in animals, and every such case, as a rule, well-known scientists and thoroughly documented. But it happens all the same and so that albinos are born small, which a man from time-to-time is not known, as they are well hidden and guarded their own herd.
This photo-story about a small slonёnke albino, who managed to shoot Niki coercive tourist during his African safari tour. Removing the surrounding nature, Nikki saw a herd of elephants, vacationing and frolicking in the wild open spaces, when his attention was caught by something surprising and unusual. It was a tiny pink elephant, perfect albino any coercive (and not only him) still had not seen even once in his life.
It is known that in some cases adult animals do not take newborn cubs albino killing or expelling them from the herd. But looking at these photos, I hope that this pink elephant gets all the attention, love and care of their relatives, as well as other conventional slonyata.
