Gazelle takes bold fashion step forward?

If you've never seen anything like this antelope before, you're not alone. No one else had either, before photographer Paolo Torchio captured a series of pictures of a uniquely hairy Thompson's gazelle in Kenya.

Experts have suggested that perhaps this little guy has some kind of disease that causes the excessive hair growth. But I'm not so sure. Take a look at this picture of your average Thompson's gazelle:

Boring, right? Does the world really need more pretty, graceful animals like this? If you were a teenage Thompson's gazelle, wouldn't you try to be different, too?
