This Baby Zebra Was Born With Dots Instead Of Stripes – First Time Ever Captured (5 Pics)

This zebra foal was born with spots instead of the characteristic stripes of the species. A rare baby, the spotted baby zebra has become an online sensation and has increased tourism in Kenya’s Masai Mara National Reserve.

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