An adorable six-month old koala joey has been caught on camera for the first time at the Royal Zoological Society of Scotland’s Edinburgh Zoo, peeking out of its mother’s pouch.

Keepers at the wildlife conservation charity captured a glimpse of the very tiny joey who was born on 26 June to first time mum Kalari and dad Tanami. It will be a while before visitors will be able to spot the youngster, who will take a few months to grow big enough to move from the pouch onto Kalari’s back.

Please note: Due to Level 4 restrictions regarding indoor areas, Koala Territory is currently closed to the public
