{VIDEO} New faces in Australian Walkabout

Wallaby babies spotted in Australian Walkabout...

A few cute little faces have been spotted peering out of pouches in recent weeks, down in the Australian Walkabout enclosure.

They belong to the next generation of Red Necked wallabies, who share their large enclosure within Animal Encounters with a flock of Greater Rhea.

The youngsters are known as 'joeys' and will spend the next few weeks staying in mum's pouch while they develop fur and grow a little bit bigger. By Easter, visitors may notice that some joeys will still be trying to fit into their mother's pouches, even though they are far too big!

Keepers are ensuring that they spend a bit more time around the mothers so that the joeys will become used to the feeding habits and having people in the enclosure with them. Due to this, the joeys can tend to be rather brave with the keepers when they first start venturing out of the pouches.

The Red Necked wallaby can be found in Southern and Eastern Australian, and although not an endangered species, they are under threat from deforestation.
