Only in blessed country like TZ The fashion forward hippo that looks like she's wearing pink boots By Daily Mail Reporter She looks like a well-heeled hippo with a penchant for pink boots as she stands on the river bank munching on lunch. However, this hippo actually has a bizarre skin condition which means her body is brown but all four or her feet and lower legs are pink. The two-year-old animal is thought to have leucism, a skin condition characterised by reduced pigmentation. What are you looking at? This hippo looks like she is wearing pink boots as she grazes on grass by a riverbank This usually results in blotching or complete discolouration but it is rare for it to affect just the feet and legs. From afar it looks like the gigantic mammal is wearing pink wellies on each of her short stocky legs as she grazes in the afternoon sun. Photographer Peter Gordon snapped the unusual sight in the Selous Game Reserve, Tanzania, as he went for an afternoon drive along the Great Ruaha River. The 55-year-old said: 'The hippo was grazing on the shore among about six other Hippos in the late afternoon. 'Hippos do not normally graze during the day. It is more usual for them to graze at night and to rush back into the water if disturbed in any way. 'We saw them in the distance and, when they did not react, moved forward slowly. 'We were fortunate to be able to spend some time with them before they went back into the river.' Mr Gordon, who lives on the reserve, added: 'I have observed hippos having different levels of leucistic spots at different places in Africa. 'These spots can occur randomly on the hippo's body but it is extremely unusual to have all four feet the same. 'This daytime sighting gave me a good opportunity to record this phenomenon, as hippos spend almost the whole day in the river. 'We were about 70 metres from the animals and not posing a threat to them.'
