SAVANNAH

A rare pink elephant shooted in Maasai Mara

The puppy is an albino and mum didn't reject

30-11-2019 by redazione

A very rare case of a pink elephant, a puppy suffering from albinism, was photographed for the first time by nature photographer Mustafa Elbrolosy in the Kenyan reserve of Maasai Mara. It is hypothesized that the elephant whose shades of light gray go as far as pink, enjoys good health and the story is a happy ending precisely because the mother of the puppy has decided to breastfeed, contrary to what usually can happen with this kind of abnormal births, when the herd forces the parent to abandon the baby that, unless immediate intervention of associations such as Save The Elephants, will die for lack of breastfeeding.
Instead, the little albino pachyderm, from the photos of Elbrolosy, seems active and very attached to the elephant mother.
"Rare creatures are always the most attractive for any nature photographer, and having the opportunity to look and photograph was like a dream - explained the photographer with great emotion - I live in Maasai Mara and I have a field. There I received the radio news of a female elephant that had given birth to an albino puppy. I took my camera and went to look for it with one of our guides. We had the surprise in the afternoon after a long period of research - very few people had come to see her because nobody expected her to be giving birth to a little albino. I was very lucky to have the chance to see and photograph this extremely rare casp. Even more unusual was that it was surrounded and very well protected by the herd, trying to feed on her mother and walk with her. She had only eight hours, an extraordinary vision.
