‘Pink’ Elephant – A Rare Species of Elephants Found in South African Safari Park

April 18, 2019 at 9:23 am Leave a comment

Let us talk about the (pink) elephant in the room. Lately, an extremely rare albino elephant was spotted in South Africa’s MalaMala Private Game Reserve. A video of this adorable three weeks old champagne-pink calf has now gone viral on the Internet.
Speaking of the Pink Elephant, it is a rare occurrence in African elephants, and it’s presence has not been well documented. From the clip, it was hard to point out if the calf is a true albino or if it’s unusual coloring is caused by leucism, a genetic condition causing pigment loss.
Irrespective whether albino or leucistic, this baby elephant has a tough road ahead of it. As animals with skin conditions are often sensitive to the harsh rays of the sun and could also have health problems related to a genetic mutation.
An article on this rare elephant was published by Earth Touch News Network recently –Baby ‘Pink’ Elephant Filmed Frolicking On South African Game Reserve…

“A Call For Sustainable Biodiversity Conservation; The Elephant Can Survive Only If Forests Survive.”

Forest elephants have been diminishing throughout their range during the last several decades.

Therefore, if we do not conserve our environment and forest today, then the day is not far when we will only find the Elephants in photos and videos.

  • Yes, just like humans elephants share a close bond with nature and family and are adversely affected if any crisis takes place.
  • However, with rising deforestation and continuous poaching activities, elephant species are threatened of being endangered.
  • Elephants are highly adaptable intelligent and masters of survival, which allows them to survive a lifespan of 60-70 years.
