St. Louis Zoo Is Jumping with Joeys!

Meet the Saint Louis Zoo's new little pride and joeys!
Meet the Saint Louis Zoo's new little pride and joeys!
Two baby faces have emerged from within pouches this summer – a Matschie's tree kangaroo in Emerson Children's Zoo, and a red kangaroo in Red Rocks. Seven months ago, Bexley the Matschie's tree kangaroo was born the size of a lima bean. He immediately moved into his mother's pouch to be nurtured and developed and has since grown to be the size of a small cat. Visitors who are patient may see Bexley climbing all the way out of the pouch, reaching for his mom's food and beginning to explore his world. At about 10 months old, he will officially move out of the pouch, but will continue to nurse until he is at least 16 months old. (Robin Winkelman/Saint Louis Zoo)

Two baby faces have emerged from within pouches this summer – a Matschie's tree kangaroo in Emerson Children's Zoo, and a red kangaroo in Red Rocks. A red kangaroo joey with an estimated birth date of January 14, 2012, was first spotted sticking his/her head out of mother Conundrum's pouch in June, and is now coming and going from the pouch quite regularly. Zoo staff have not yet determined the joey's gender. Red kangaroos are the largest marsupials. They live in mobs on the plains of Australia, where they dine on grasses and leaves. Reddish-brown males and smaller grey females can cover a distance of 25 feet in one leap, often traveling as fast as 30 mph. (Robin Winkelman/Saint Louis Zoo)
