Baby Koala: A Joey moves in its pouch at the Taipei Zoo

Watch more with these video collections:

A baby koala, called a Joey, moves inside (and occasionally peeks from!) its mother’s pouch at the Taipei Zoo. From National Geographic:

…a female koala carries her baby in her pouch for about six months. When the infant emerges, it rides on its mother’s back or clings to her belly, accompanying her everywhere until it is about a year old.


There are a few more koalas in the archives.
