Koala joey a bit hit at zoo

He may be only 200g, but this koala joey is the big attraction at Western Australia's Cohunu Wildlife Park. The park's latest addition has been out of his mum's pouch for less than two weeks but is already a crowd favourite.

Park owner Lucille Sorbello said the tiny tot only came out of the pouch for short periods to claw around on his mother's back - then went back in for another feed.

The joey, yet to be named, is the third born at the park this year.

It joins 10 other southern male koalas and three breeding females at the park.
