Rare condition earns injured koala rock star status

Veterinarians at the Australia Zoo Wildlife Hospital are treating a koala for injuries likely sustained when she was hit by a car. The koala has one blue eye and one brown eye, known as heterochromia, and the veterinarians named her Bowie after the late singer David Bowie, whose eyes appeared to be different colors but reportedly instead had different sized pupils, a condition called anisocoria.
