A video has emerged from South Africa of a very rare albino or "pink" baby elephant.

The footage, captured on August 7 in Greater Kruger Conservancy, shows the tiny elephant playing in the water with the rest of the herd.

Albino African elephants are an extremely rare and many don't make it to adulthood.

"The lack of pigmentation causes skin problems in the African sun," the filmer wrote online.

"As with in albinism in humans and other animals, the eyes are also very sensitive to the sun and usually leads to blindness," the filmer added.
