The first koala joey in the UK was born to mum Alinga in Edinburgh zoo.

A koala joey only measures 2cm long at birth and stays in their mothers pouch during 6 months. Thus we expect the joey to make his first public appearance around mid -October when the joey starts to climb on his mother's belly.

Around December, the joey will climb on Alinga's back, and the zoo keepers will be able to weigh, sex and name the joey!
