Cuteness Overload: Baby Koala Emerges From Mother's Pouch

By Sean Dowling (Buzz60)

All eyes are on a baby koala in California, who has just left her mother's pouch for the first time!

The little joey's appearance has been a long time coming at the San Diego Zoo. She was born last November, but she only recently emerged from her mother, Cambee.

Fortunately, the zoo got captured it all on camera.


Clinging to her mother's back, the unnamed joey is along for the ride, and people can't get enough!

The video has been gone viral with more than 261,000 views on the zoo's Facebook page.

Visitors can see the joey and her mother at the zoo's Koalafornia exhibit, home to the most successful koala breeding program outside of Australia.

The zoo staff says at this age, the joey hasn't shown them her personality yet, but she's doing great and has already started eating eucalyptus leaves, a main staple for koalas.

During the summer months, the zoo is offering extended hours to allow guests to view all of the koalas during their more active hours of early morning and early evening.

But let's be honest, all anyone wants to see is the joey.

The zoo knows that and lets fans keep tabs on mother Cambee and her baby on the Koala cam, which live-streams their activity.

Now this joey just needs a name! How about Joey?
