Rare Marsupial Joey Makes First Appearance at Chester Zoo

England’s Chester Zoo was celebrating the mid-April debut of their first dusky pademelon joey who was born earlier this spring to its mother, Styx.Dusky pademelons are from the same marsupial family as kangaroos, and are native to New Guinea, according to National Geographic.The zoo shared photos and footage of the joey peeking out of the first time mother’s pouch.

The zoo said joeys are born 30 days after mating and continue growing in their mother’s pouches before fully emerging after about seven months.Zoo officials believe the joey will fully emerge from its mother’s pouch soon, allowing them to determine its gender and give it a name.
