Joey takes first peeks out of mother’s pouch at UK zoo

VARIOUS OF YET-TO-BE NAMED DUSKY PADEMELON JOEY PEEKING FROM MOTHER STYX'S POUCH AND LOOKING AT SURROUNDINGS 2.

VARIOUS OF STILL PHOTOGRAPHS OF DUSKY PADEMELON JOEY PEEKING FROM STYX'S POUCH STORY: A dusky pademelon joey took first peeks from its mother's pouch at Chester Zoo, England.

Video and photos taken on April 9 show the yet-to-be-named joey discovering its surrounding as it looks out of mother Styx's pouch.

The joey is believed to have been born on March 9 when keepers first noticed movement in the pouch and is the first of its kind to be born at the facility, Chester Zoo said.

"An adult dusky pademelon's pouch has a powerful muscle to prevent the joey from falling out, but it won't be too long until it's ready to fully emerge and start hopping around on its own two feet", Dave White, Team Manager of the zoo's Twilight team, said in an emailed statement.

"That's when we'll discover whether it's a boy or a girl and choose its name," White added.

The small marsupials, also known as dusky wallabies, are listed as vulnerable by the International Union for Conservation of Nature (IUCN).
