When an Australian woman discovered a white kangaroo in outback Queensland, she couldn’t believe her eyes. Sarah Kinnon, a resident of Nogo Station, observed the kangaroo and managed to capture a few photos of the unique animal. White kangaroos are extremely unusual, occurring just once every 50,000 to 100,000 people.

She told the media, “I was just out with my husband, we were dropping some rams back to the paddock, and there was a white kangaroo.”

She added, “It was pretty incredible to see it, if you put a white sheet of paper next to it, that’s how white it was. It blew me away really.”

She further added, ”It was all a bit rushed really, we didn’t see him for long. I just chucked my daughter to my husband, got my camera and that’s about all I had time for.”

Pictures shared on a Facebook page called Outback Pioneers with the caption, ”Have you ever come across an ALBINO KANGAROO in the bush? Yesterday, Sarah Kinnon came across this rare and beautiful marsupial at Nogo Station. We’re so lucky Sarah captured a couple of quick pics before he bounded off across the paddock. So let us know if you’ve come across an albino roo out in the bush.”

Take a look at the pictures given below:

According to the media, Paul Oliver, the Queensland Museum’s Curator of Vertebrates, believes the ‘creature’ observed in Longreach was actually a leucistic kangaroo, not an albino. He told the media, “Just looking at the picture, it looks to have black eyes, it’s hard to see for sure but that suggests it’s not an albino. You can have true albino, which you need to look for pink eyes, or sometimes there’s another type of mutation called leucism where sometimes they’ll have black eyes.”
