Meet The Very Rare And Very Adorable Albino Wallaby Born At This Zoo

Rob Vernon, the Senior Vice President for Communications and Strategy for the Association of Zoos and Aquariums, said that “Albino wallabies are fairly common in Australia, where private zoos breed for the recessive trait.”

Although common over in Australia, it really is not so common here in America.

The Association of Zoos and Aquariums (also shortened to the AZA) oversees an accredited number of more than 240 zoos here in America, and the AZA doesn’t let zoos breed for albinism.

The Sunset Zoo is accredited by the Association of Zoos and Aquariums, and Bruny is a happy accident since they did not intentionally try to breed to create an albino wallaby.
