These baby wallabies are settling in to their new home at San Diego Zoo Safari Park.

Three female red-necked wallaby joeys have arrived to be part of a new exhibit at the park, but are currently being hand-reared by staff until they’re ready to meet their public.

“They come out for their bottle-feedings and some occasional playtime. They are aware of each other and tend to be a little curious of one another. We see them poke their heads out at each other and touch noses from time to time.”

Keepers are feeding them a mix of special marsupial formula milk, hay and marsupial feed pellets.

Eventually they will join the as yet unopened Walkabout Australia exhibit, which will give visitors the chance to interact with Australian species like wallabies, kangaroos and wombats, as well as learning about their natural habitats.
