A Gorilla Born Without Pigmentation On Her Fingers Has The Appearance Of A Human Hand

Meet Anaka, a remarkable juvenile gorilla with a patch of pigment on her hand that is one of a kind.

It almost looks human-like in close-up photos, which makes sense given our close kinship with gorillas, who also have opposable thumbs.

Her skin isn’t the only feature that sets her apart; she also appears to have a distinct personality.

“[She] is frequently seen riding piggyback on her brother and sisters and yelling at her mother and others to secure a prime place for food and juice.”

Many people assumed Anaka had vitiligo, which is a long-term skin disorder.

‘Well, her skin pigment has always been like that and hasn’t changed throughout the years, so we think it’s simply a cool birthmark,’ says one.
