A very cute little face is waiting to greet guests in The Sanctuary at the Wildlife Retreat at Taronga, with a Tammar Wallaby Joey recently emerging from mum’s pouch.
The joey has been named Flynn, after the Flinders Chase National Park on Kangaroo Island, where Tammar Wallabies can be found.
Born to mum Jilly, Flynn is roughly seven months old and has started to explore life outside the pouch as well as experimenting with solid food.
Recently, vets from the Taronga Wildlife Hospital gave Flynn a full health check, confirming he was a male Tammar Wallaby and giving him a clean bill of health.
While mum Jilly is protective of her boy, guests of the Wildlife Retreat have a chance to catch a glimpse of Flynn during a Sanctuary Tour, exclusive to all guests of the Wildlife Retreat at Taronga.
Flynn shares The Sanctuary with an array of native Australian wildlife including Rufous Bettongs, Potoroos, Echidnas, Red-neck Pademelons and Koalas.
