Photo Of Rare Albino Kangaroo Seen In The Wild Blows Up The Internet

Australia has a lush supply of regular kangaroos, but the albinos among the species are quite a rarity.

On January 31st, Rosemary Faehrmann was driving with her husband in South Australia when she spotted one of the fair creatures.
