GARISSA COUNTY, Kenya — Just months after viral sensation April the giraffe gave birth to her fifth calf, another mother giraffe is in the spotlight.
"Did you know that the Ishaqbini Hirola Sanctuary, located in Ijara sub-county, Garissa county, is home to both the critically endangered Hirola Antelope & the only white giraffe in the world?" the agency tweeted June 10. "Having birthed a male calf in Feb 2017, mama giraffe is again expectant."
Officials did not specify when the giraffe is expected to give birth.
"As we await the newborn, the source of excitement is whether baby will be white, too," KWS tweeted.
Although the agency said the white giraffe is the only one of its kind, one commenter pointed out that the statement may not be completely accurate.
"Your post should have read 'possibly only entirely white giraffe' in the world," tweeted Odeo Sirari, a news editor for the Kenya Television Network.
