LUFKIN -- The Ellen Trout Zoo in Lufkin has a brand new addition.
It's a baby Bennet's Wallaby!
Our newspaper partner, The Lufkin Daily News reporting, the baby is an estimated six months old, but has just started showing its head.
The Zoo hasn't named the baby yet, because they don't know its gender.
Baby wallabies, or joeys, are smaller versions of kangaroos.
They are native to Australia and New Zealand, and spend much of their early lives inside a pouch on their mother's stomach.
