Established by the Irwin family in 1970, the Australia Zoo in Queensland is one of the biggest wildlife conservation facilities in the world. Visitors are able to see Australia's most unique animals, including kangaroos, lace monitors, tiger snakes and koalas, up close and personal. Now, the zoo has one more rare animal to add to that list.

Back in January, one of the zoo's resident Koalas gave birth to 12 joeys (that's what baby koalas are called) and one of them has noticeably stood out from the rest.

In a strikingly rare occurrence, one of the joeys was born with white fur.

"Welcome to the world little one... we love you 'cause you're different," Tourism Australia wrote on its Facebook page on Tuesday.

So adorable! Just wait till you see the rest of the newborn's photos.
