New baby at Lufkin's Ellen Trout Zoo
LUFKIN- The Lufkin Daily News reports the Ellen Trout Zoo has a new addition.
It's a baby Bennet's Wallaby!
The baby is an estimated six months old, but has just now started showing it's head.
We are told the zoo hasn't named the baby yet, because they dont' know it's gender.
Baby wallabies, or joeys, are smaller versions of kangaroos, and are native to Australia and New Zealand.
The babies spend most of their early lives inside a pouch on their mother's stomach.
