Baby tree kangaroo introduced at the Bronx Zoo in New York

A baby Matschie’s tree kangaroo, known as a joey, has made its first public appearance at the Bronx Zoo in New York City on Friday. 

As it matures it will begin to venture out of its mother's pouch to explore its environment and start spending more time outside.

At birth, the joey it is about the size of a human thumbnail and immediately crawls through the mother’s fur to enter her pouch. 

After about seven months, the joey emerges from the pouch, but frequently returns to nurse.
