Don't know about the auction, but they do exist. They are abinos I believe. Kruger National Park has several of them if I'm not mistaken. I have seen some pictures of them some where."Ignorance is curable, stupid is forever."

John Coleman wrote an article about a white kudu that he took with a client many moons ago. It features in the Magnum Magazine or African Outfitter can't remember, I think last month or the month before. I think they are just a slip-of-nature or actual albino etc very rare.

Leucism VS. Albinism
The white Kudu as what is being referred to, is not an Albino but rather leucistic, (same as white lion...not albino) the latter (leucism) reduces all types of pigment over the broad spectrum.
Albinisms results in the reduction of melanin production only, as a result albinos are not entirely white, but instead display a pale yellow colour as a norm, as well as the very visible and unmistakeable pink colouring around the eyes and nose always present in Albino's.
My best always.

Rickb 100% correct, it is also the same phenomena responsible for pieball (sp.) deer, with a little variance, creating the blotched effect, it is the same with the Kudu these guys are reffering to as Marius also states the artificiall un natural game breeders game market in SA leans it self very well to these kind of things especially when taking into consideration the amount of money they spend on it.
Blows my mind.....
My best always.
PS. correct brick it will be at Hanley's auction, I must say and please this is very hush hush I heard they also had a black sable... V for Victory...... vip it in vip it out vipe it off.
