A pink elephant!

Pink elephants were once the symptom of drunkenness and delirium tremens.  But now one has been sighted: an albino elephant calf in Botswana.   This is apparently a case of albinism: a condition that is extremely rare in pachyderms.  Biologists worry that, as in humans, the condition could cause eye or skin problems.  Read the BBC report about this beastie here.
