For the 1st Time, Baby Tree Kangaroo Jumps Out of Mommy's Pouch
A Goodfellow’s tree-kangaroo joey took his first hops at the Taronga Zoo in Mosman, Australia, on Thursday, April 19.
In a video shared on the zoo’s official Facebook page, the little joey can be seen climbing out of his mother’s pouch and taking his first few hops in the world. The zoo announced the joey’s emergence from his mother’s pouch on April 10 in a press release. The baby kangaroo is a boy but has not been named yet.
As of writing, the footage has over 50,000 views on Facebook.
