Spotted: Wild Baby Zebra Has Spots Instead Of Stripes

An extremely rare spotted zebra was spotted (no pun intended) in Maasai Mara! A photographer at the Maasai Mara camp was completely surprised to come across the rare "blacker" newly born zebra. Mr Antony Tira, a renowned tour guide at the camp was able to photograph the black-dotted foal and posted it on the camp's Facebook page, where it has gained a lot of media attention. 

Tira told Nation, "At first I thought it was a zebra that had been captured and painted or marked for purposes of migration. I was confused when I first saw it." Upon closer inspection, Tira realized it was actually a zebra with melanin disorder, hardly a week old.

This is Mara's first record case of such a rare zebra.

What are these unusual looking ungulates? Are they just painted Antelopes? Deers in disguise? Is someone just playing a trick on me? The big, cute ears make me wonder though... Help me squeeps, what is this creature?
