White Wildebeest calf update

02 Mar 2015 by Alex Walker's Serian

Morning Carel,

Just an update on the white (albino) wildebeest calf that was spotted by Nomad last week, we found him again several days ago, shunned by his mother and pushed away by the herd.

We bumped into him, this time right in front of camp still following his mother. Lets see what happens and we will keep an eye out for him. He seems to be feeding and we are monitoring his hearing and eyesight which appear to be limited.  

Keep well,
Alex
