Meet Zoe! Born in Hawaii, is one of very few 'Golden' Zebras known in existence. Beautiful right?
Analysis: This is an actual photograph that has been digitally manipulated (by whom, we don't know) to exaggerate her unusual coloring. Zoe the zebra is real, but sans color enhancement her stripes look more beige than golden, and her eyes, though bright blue, don't have the preternatural glow seen above (view original image here, and another here).
