It’s mom! A newborn baby koala joey is properly meeting her mom for the very first time and it’s so adorable! The tender moment was captured on camera at Symbio Wildlife Park in Helensburgh, Australia.

 The tiny bundle of joy looks up in wonder at her mother while contentedly nestled in her pouch. She’s so, so happy!

Symbio Wildlife Park is home to koalas, kangaroos and all your Australian favorites.

Koalas are seasonal breeders, and births take place from the middle of spring through the summer to early autumn, from October to May. The koala's gestation period lasts 33–35 days, and a female gives birth to a single joey (although twins occur on occasion).


The koala is featured in the Dreamtime stories and mythology of indigenous Australians. The Tharawal people believed that the animal helped row the boat that brought them to the continent.[130] Another myth tells of how a tribe killed a koala and used its long intestines to create a bridge for people from other parts of the world.
