Now too big for mom’s pouch, Baby Koala Owen has finally emerged for
visitors at the Koala exhibit at the
Riverbanks Zoo in South Carolina. Born to mom Lottie last May, Owen started
out as a jellybean-sized Joey nestled deep within mom’s pouch.

Early in the 20th Century, Koalas were almost hunted to extinction for their
fur which was shipped to Europe and North America.
