Baby Zebra Is Born With Dots Instead Of Stripes – First Time Ever Recorded (10 Pics)

An extremely rare polka dot baby zebra was spotted in Kenya, and it has captured our hearts.

Photographers managed to capture some adorable photos of the baby zebra in Kenya’s Masai Mara National Reserve.

Here’s the whole encounter caught on video:

This is the first known case of a zebra with a polka dot appearance like this in the mara Reserve.

The polka dot appearance comes from a genetic disorder called pseudo-melanism where animals display an abnormality in their stripe pattern
