Potter Zoo welcomes "Joey"

By  | 

It was an exciting day at Potter Park Zoo on Tuesday.

The zoo has a new baby western grey kangaroo.

The animal is also referred to as a black-faced kangaroo, mallee kangaroo, or sooty kangaroo.

Zookeepers says the adorable and rambunctious Joey has been seen out of its mother's pouch a few times now.

Potter Park Zoo is one of only ten accredited zoos to house western grey kangaroos.

The kangaroos are found throughout western and central mainland Australia.
