Polka dotted Zebra baby while on safari in Masai Mara

Why are you different says mother Zebra. While on safari in Masai Mara we saw a polka dotted brown Zebra baby with its mother. This is a rare genetic mutation called Pseudo Melanism. The other Zebras in the pack chased the little baby away ,maybe thinking it's not one of them.
