A polka-dotted zebra has been spotted in Kenya’s Maasai Mara National Park, which is an uncommon sight. This uncommon scene was captured by a photographer. It’s very captivating. Such awe in and of itself.
Frank Liu, a Hong Kong-based wildlife photographer, was able to capture this magnificent picture via his lens. This photographer traveled to the East African country in September 2019. The Massai guide told him about this uncommon creature during his visit to the National Park.
The next day, Frank had the opportunity to witness and photograph this magnificence with his own eyes. He did this so that everyone else might witness God’s wonderful creation.
Tira was the name given to the foal by the National Park guide. It’s really cute.
Aside from that, this isn’t the first time Frank has seen anything similar. He stated on Instagram that he observed another zebra with a similar case a few years ago, but it still had stripes and a bushy tail. Tira, on the other hand, has markings on her skin that resemble spots. Not only that, but she’s a different hue from the rest of the zebras.
According to National Geographic, this is due to a rare genetic abnormality. Even her skin tone is the result of partial albinism. Her future, however, remains unknown. Those who have this genetic mutation have a low chance of surviving in the long run.
Normally, the colors of zebras repel biting insects. However, it would be tough in Tira. She has a lot of challenges ahead of her. Nothing will be able to stop her if she is able to cross them. On the other hand, the reserve guide has no trouble recognizing her. Furthermore, they are keeping track on her and periodically observing her.
Frank Liu is a very fortunate photographer.
Tira is born to standout!
