Kenya: Rare baby albino elephant born in Amboseli National Park (video)

A rare baby albino elephant was born in Kenya's Amboseli National Park earlier in December 2011. The baby elephant has a white tail and body hair, pale skin, and very pink ears. Albino elephants are usually not "white", but instead they have more of a reddish-brown hue, turning a light pink when wet.
Albino elephants are an extremely rare phenomenon in Africa, while in Asia they are thought to be not that unusual. Both the King of Burma and the King of Thailand are keeping small herds of "albino elephants".
