SEATTLE (AP) — A 5-month-old baby wallaby has started peeking out of its mother’s pouch at the Woodland Park Zoo in Seattle.

The zoo says it’s the first infant wallaby — known as a joey — born at the zoo.

It weighs just over a pound and should start hopping around on its own this summer, although it will return to the pouch for feeding.
