Snowy goes global

The Guardian is joining in the interest in Namadgi National Park’s albino kangaroo:

A rare albino kangaroo, its startlingly white coat standing out in sharp contrast to its grey-coloured companions, has been spotted near Canberra.

The snow-white marsupial was seen by a shocked ranger in the vast Namadgi national park, before being tracked down by colleagues who confirmed the sighting.

According to rangers, the animal is an eastern grey kangaroo, probably female and aged around two years old.

The age of the kangaroo has surprised wildlife staff, due to the heightened dangers faced by the pale-skinned animal.
