Cosmo and his dad, Boomer.

(CNN)A New York zoo has welcomed a baby red kangaroo with a rare condition that left park employees shocked.

Cosmo, the newest joey at Animal Adventure Park, was born with leucism, an incredibly rare condition that causes the partial loss of pigmentation in an animal's skin and fur. Unlike albinism, leucism does not cause a lack of pigmentation in the eyes. 
The baby was born at the animal park in Harpursville five months ago but was removed by keepers from his mother's pouch for the first time on January 15.
