A two-month-old male okapi (Okapia johnstoni) named Mzimu (which means “ghost” in Swahili) at the Al Bustan Zoological Centre in Sharjah, United Arab Emirates. This individual is leucistic, meaning there is a lack of pigmentation in his hair and skin, giving him a rare white-gray appearance. Both of his parents and his brother have normal coloration, which makes him very unique among okapis. The species is listed as endangered by the IUCN.
