This animal is born for the first time
In the Australian zoo Koala gave birth to a baby with a rare white color.
He has already been given the name Joey. The animal has white fur. It happens quite rarely and is due to the presence of specific recessive gene inherited from his mother TII.
“In veterinary science, this is often referred to as “genes posereznee” when animals are born with white or very pale fur color. Like children’s baby teeth, their fur gradually changes color to the standard,” explained zoo Director Rosie Booth.
Births white koalas are considered extremely rare. In the wild they are considered more of a variant is not the norm. This is due to the fact that for such “clothes” are more visible to predators.
Usually, the fur color of these animals varies from light gray to brown shades, it depends on the environment in which they live.
