Albino Wallaby Emerges From Mother's Pouch at San Diego Zoo Safari Park

We went back to the San Diego Zoo Safari Park on Sunday and I got to see the coolest thing I've seen in a long time. Fortunately, my camera was rolling. I'll post pictures another time, but here for your viewing pleasure:


This rare albino wallaby joey was born at the San Diego Zoo Safari Park. We were hoping to get a glimpse of him when he decided to assert his individuality and come all of the way out. I don't know how old the joey is, but the volunteer docent suggested that it would be permanently out of the pouch soon, which puts him at nearly 9 months old if the information was accurate. I asked if it will have to wear sunscreen and it was suggested that it will probably be made an animal ambassador so that it would spend more time indoors. Video taken Sunday, June 27, 2020.
