A tour guide and photographer at the Maasai Mara Game Reserve in Kenya made an extremely rare discovery recently. Antony Tira came across a zebra foal, but unlike every other zebra he's witnessed, this one had spots instead of stripes.

Tira said, “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."

The week-old zebra suffers from melanin disorder, which effects the pigmentation of its fur.
