Anyone remember that song from Dumbo?

An extremely rare occurrence, and possibly the first documented case of a pink - probably albino - elephant calf was photographed in Botswana. According to the BBC, the baby is using its mother as shade and may be learning to adapt in order to avoid health problems of the skin and eyes that are associated with albinism.
