We are not aware of any leucistic red kangaroo in the United States, proving just how rare this occurrence is!  Animal Adventure Park

The joey, who is actually a red kangaroo, has a mutation that caused him to be born totally white. 

Contrary to what you might think, Cosmo is not albino — he is a leucistic red kangaroo. 

According to the park, the difference is that Cosmo still has black color pigmentation in his eyes rather than the normally anticipated red-eyed albino mutation.

The little joey is perfectly healthy, despite his exceptional coloring that makes him even more adorable. 

A post on the Animal Adventure Park's Instagram shows Cosmo meeting his dad, Boomer, who has the typical coloring of a red kangaroo. 

Once the Animal Adventure Park reopens in the spring, visitors who are looking forward to seeing the roos will be in for a special treat.
