Rare White Kangaroo Born At Australian Wildlife Sanctuary

An Eastern gray kangaroo has given birth to an all white albino kangaroo at an Australian wildlife sanctuary in Victoria.

Only 1 in 100,000 kangaroos are born with this unique skin condition, although the white joey’s father being an albino may have helped.

Annemaree Van Rooy, owner of the Panorama Garden Estate was the first to spot the joey, talking to UNILAD she said:

“The joey hasn’t been named yet as it only popped its head out a couple of weeks ago. She’ll be popping out hopefully in the next month for short periods of time.”

Check out this video of the little guy poking his head out of his moms pouch:

While albino kangaroos are a rare sight, there are many at this wildlife sanctuary, “we have a mob of white kangaroos and albino kangaroos that live here on the sanctuary.”

“There are about nine in the mob now, a combination of white and albino,” Van Rooy added. “They are quite rare and very distinctive.”

Albino animals are often plagued with a number of health issues, so in the wild, they can face many problems.
