A Kangaroo's First Hops

A joey named Jellybean recently left his mother's pouch for the first time at the Australian Reptile Park near Sydney. He apparently built up a lot of kinetic energy sitting in there and has to let it out!

Kangaroos are marsupials, meaning they are born prematurely compared to mammals, and stay in their mother's pouch for about nine months before venturing out. Jellybean will be in and out of the pouch for another nine months or so before he is completely weaned. Meanwhile he can explore and play, then go back in for a meal and some rest when he pleases. Life is a bowl of jellybeans for Jellybean! -via Mashable
