Special Wallaby Name Chosen

IMG 0187

Thank you for submitting your name suggestions for the special new zoo family member. The little guys name has been chosen and it is Flash! Flash is a rare Bennett wallaby because he is albino! There is only a 1 in a 100,000 chance that Flash could have been born an albino wallaby! When you visit the zoo you may see Flash riding in moms pouch or see him hopping about on the ground playing with the leaves.
