Here's something you don't see every day: In this video from the Taipei Zoo, a baby koala peeks out of its mom’s pouch. It’s a little bit creepy — and a lot fascinating.
According to ZooBorns, the baby’s lack of fur is an indication that it probably has one or two more months to spend in that pouch before making a full debut — but it’s likely to start poking out more and more before then.
A marsupial infant spends about six months in the female’s pouch after it's born, and then clings to its mother’s back or belly until it gets to be about 1 year old, according to National Geographic.
