This rare albino Vervet monkey in Livingstone, Zambia, was first spotted as a baby in 2005. Locals say he seems to spend a lot of time alone, unlike normal Vervet monkeys, but he can run and climb trees as quickly as his playmates.

More recently, another albino monkey was spotted near Victoria Falls Waterfront Lodge in Zambia, and the hotel posted photos to Facebook in hopes of naming their visitor.
