A giraffe without spots was born at Brights Zoo a few weeks ago.
Its presence also became the main concern at the zoo in the State of Tennessee, United States (US).
The giraffe was described by Bright's Zoo Director, David Bright, as a very rare animal.
The animal, known as a reticulated giraffe, is now six feet tall or about 1.82 meters.
Bright said the female giraffe is a beautiful deep brown color, with no pattern typical of her species to help camouflage her in the wild.
"This is the first known giraffe to be born without a pattern since 1972 in Japan," he said, as quoted by AFP.
The baby giraffe's name has yet to be chosen from a list proposed by users on the zoo's Facebook page.
"She is growing well under the care of her attentive mother and the zoo's expert staff," Bright said in a statement.
He hopes that the media attention on the birth of the spotless giraffe will help raise public awareness of the threats facing wild giraffes.
The zoo's founder, Tony Bright, said the wild giraffe population is toward extinction.
"40 percent of the wild giraffe population was lost in just the last three decades," he said.
