Kangaroo and joey

Baby Joey Photos: A new addition to our kangaroo family

It has been obvious for some time that the mature female had a joey in her pouch, but this is the first time we have actually glimpsed it.  This makes five kangaroos here now.  The middle-sized female also now seems to be carrying a joey, so I guess five will soon turn to six.

The joey is too small to get out of the pouch, I think,, but it was certainly having a good look around this morning.

The joey’s face is still pink in many places.

From the way the joey is smelling the grass, it probably won’t be long before it is eating alongside its mother.

Let me know what you think!
