Three new kangaroo joeys are the latest addition to the ABQ BioPark.

They're joining the other four females and three males in the kangaroo area.

Two of the babies are still hiding out in their mother's pouches, but one is already out on his own.

The zoo's head keeper, Anthony York, talked to KOB Eyewitness News 4 about the new additions.   

"All baby mammals, especially to us keepers, they're just adorable, we can't get enough of them. And I think people in general flock to that," York said.

York told KOB 4 the zoo is part of a zoo-sharing program, and that means the kangaroos could be transferred to another zoo in the future.

The public will be able to check out the new joeys every day from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.
