Gorilla Born With A Lack Of Pigmentation On Her Fingers Looks Like A Human Hand

Meet Anaka, a special young gorilla who has a unique patch of pigment on her hand.

In close-up pictures, it almost looks human-like, which makes sense considering we are closely related to gorillas, and they also have opposable thumbs.

Her skin isn’t the only unique thing about her, apparently she has a very unique personality too.

“[She’s] often barking at her mom and others to get a prime spot for food and juice [and] She is often seen riding piggyback on her brother and sisters.”

A lot of people thought Anaka suffered from vitiligo which is a long term skin condition.

Well, not all people: ‘Well, her skin pigment has always been like that and hasn’t changed over the years, so we think it’s just a cool birthmark.’
