It’s joey season which also means it’s time for wallaby pouch-checks. This four-year old wallaby mum was hand-reared by our staff and because of this, she is very calm and comfortable around them. So comfortable in fact, Motus is allowing our carnivore keeper Andy to carefully check on the male joey that is growing inside her pouch.
Motus is laying inside of a hand-made pouch that allows our keepers to health check, take weights, and check on her growing joey while keeping the experience stress-free and enjoyable for her. Our keepers report that our wallabies are often happy to remain inside these pouches for hours!
