Albino Wallaby Peeks Out of Mom’s Pouch

Whoa. It’s a little funky to see a marsupial starting to emerge from his snuggly home in Mom’s pouch. But this one at the Linton Zoo in England is even more unusual.

While red-necked wallabies are usually the same combination of gray and brown that their parents are, on rare occasions an albino joey arrives, with pink eyes and white fur.

This little one completely surprised zookeepers when he poked its head out for the first time. It’s the first albino wallaby to be born at the Linton Zoo.
