Kyabram Fauna Park has welcomed it's newest addition with a 6 month old baby Koala finally emerging from mum's pouch to enjoy some of the sunny weather.
Spring appears just around the corner with Kyabram Fauna Park’s resident mother koala Haudi giving birth to a healthy baby girl.
The announcement marks the first female koala born at the park for more than 10 years, but the third baby in a row for Haudi and her mating partner McKenzie, who have so far produced three boys and two girls.
At only six months old, the new baby koala is taking its first steps outside mum’s pouch to enjoy the warmer than normal winter weather.
Kyabram Fauna Park manager Ron Pope said the baby was unnamed, with a possible competition being run in the next few weeks.
He said the new baby would become a contact animal initially before most likely being exchanged for an unrelated female to increase the park’s breeding pool.
The fauna park houses five koalas, including its newest addition, with plans for six or seven koalas in the coming years.
