Charles Foley, a researcher for the Wildlife Conservation Society, has taken a picture of the rumored white giraffe. After searching for 12-years Foley found the mysterious animal in Tanzania's savannah. The giraffe is white and black on its torso and has a traditional giraffe's yellow/brown legs. The mis-coloration is probably due to a case off partial albinoism, but is still pretty cool. And how, you wonder, are we going to relate this to New York? Glad you asked. The WCS which Foley works for is an international society that is based in the Bronx and runs the Queens, Bronx, Prospect Park and Central Park Zoos.
