Two kangaroo joeys born at Brookfield
Zoo are now exploring their outdoor habitat at the Australia
House exhibit. The joeys, born on Feb. 20 and March 13 of last year
to moms Daisy, 7½, and Sheila, 11, have been spending more time out
of their mothers' pouches.
The 10- and 11-month-old joeys began hopping around and
exploring their new surroundings this past November and just this
month, respectively. As they grow, they obviously will be too big
to fit in the pouches but will still stick their heads in to nurse
until about 18 months of age.
