4/1/2005: Albino kangaroo



What a cutie here. Phew - after yesterday's image it's good to see this one.

Zookeepers in Kernhof Austria have been successful at maintaining a genetic line of albino kangaroos. This one's named Kimberley, and the baby ("joey") there is named Canberra. They don't know whether the joey is a boy or girl yet, and won't know until it comes out of the pouch in 6 months!

So you're saying a crawl through the snake's alimentary canal bleaches the fur?

I still see a theme--animals inside of other animals. It's nice, though, that this animal isn't eating the other one.

the question is whether UT saw the them before he posted this or if it is just a happy coincidence.

i think the Joey looks like a Pit Bull in this picture. might this be a modernization of the ugly duckling story?

Austria, not Australia. Close, but very very far.

I sent a letter from the US to my parents in Austria once. It had semi-important legal documents. They were concerned when it didn't arrive for a long time. When they got it, it had a postmark from Sydney.

Must be cool to just ride around with mom and drink for 6 mos.
The young one really does look like a young American Bull Terrier.

They look more like wallabies than kangaroos. Cute either way.
