A pink elephant was spotted in South Africa. The calf is believed to be albino, which is an incredibly rare sighting in African elephants. The baby was spotted with its mom at Kruger National Park by Nicki Coertze, who was on a safari with his family. The 58-year-old tells Caters News Agency that he’s been visiting the park since he was a child and has never seen such a unique elephant. None of the photos show the elephant’s eyes open, they have pink eyes that are very sensitive to sunlight.
