Oh Baby! Our wallaby, Gerdy, has something special in her “pocket”! That’s right! She has a joey developing in her pouch.

Did you know that after a 30 day gestation, females give birth to an undeveloped joey about the size of a kidney bean? Then this little “bean” must pull itself 6 inches through the mother’s fur and into her pouch where it will latch on to a teat and stay while it continues to develop for another 6-8 months! It will be next year before we actually see Gerdy’s baby joey, so stay tuned for the big reveal next year!
