Joey meeting Dad, Boomer the Kangaroo.
Gulf Today Report
A kangaroo in the Animal Adventure Park in New York gave birth to joey, an all-white fur, according to the zoo’s social media.
The white Joey was born to a red kangaroo. Red kangaroos are born the size of your thumbnail, and do much of their development in mom's pouch, outside of the womb.
At the age of approximately 4-5 months, we do our first full "pull", removing the baby from mom's pouch for a full inspection and medical review, and then return the joey to mom's pouch for her to raise.
Today's inspection revealed an extremely rare kangaroo, what we are currently considering, Leucistic male joey.
Leucistic is the lack of colour pigmentation, resulting in a white coat. What makes him leucistic and not albino? There is black colour pigmentation in the eyes, therefore not your normally anticipated red-eyed albino mutation.
The United States is not known for any leucistic red kangaroo.
Texan Tess Talley, 38, triggered anger last summer when she posted the images of her exploits during a hunting trip the year before in South Africa. “Prayers for my once in a lifetime dream hunt came true today,” she wrote alongside the image.
A young man from California, sneaked into a zoo and stole the oldest-living ring-tailed lemur in North American captivity to keep the rare animal as a pet.
The peculiar episode took place in the state of Washington in the US, where the animal was found at ‘a significant distance’ from any water body, before being released into its natural habitat.
