Blue-Eyed Koala

150_FrankiekoalaKoalas, like some other animals, often have blue eyes as infants. But at nine months old, Frankie’s eyes never turned brown. He is therefore the world’s only known blue-eyed koala. His caretakers were so worried that they had his vision tested, and found that he sees just fine. Frankie, named for Frank Sinatra, is a resident at Dreamworld on the Gold Coast of Australia.

What a unique animal. It's interesting how mutations that cause color variations turn up from time to time. Scientists really get confused when this happens in the wild and new populations of strange colored animals turn up.
