PIC BY DEREK LEE/ CATERS NEWS - (PICTURED: Omo the white giraffe) - Are you having a giraffe? These incredible snaps show a rare WHITE giraffe grazing in the African bush. Omo the white giraffe has been spotted roaming around Tarangire National Park, in Tanzania, along with the rest of her herd  who dont seem to notice her unusual colouring. Ecologist Dr Derek Lee, founder and scientist at the Wild Nature Institute, caught the pale giraffe on camera. Derek, 45, said: Omo is leucistic, meaning many of skin cells are incapable of making a pigment but some are, so she is pale  but not pure white with red or blue eyes as a true albino would be.
