Joey journeys out of pouch

Posted by: Rebecca Whitham, Communications

The last time we showed you wallaroo Fergie’s joey, it was just barely peeking out of its mother’s pouch. But now we have video of the first sighting of Fergie’s joey fully outside of the pouch!

You can find Fergie and her joey, which was born last September, on public view in the zoo’s Australasia exhibit.

Fergie can be identified by the green tag in her right ear, and though there's no guarantee, with some luck and patience, you might just get a glimpse of the joey too.
