Baby Boom Down Under

A baby quokka (left), rushtail possum (center), and a koala, all native to Australia are held by their keeper at Sydney's Taronga Zoo. These animals, along with others at the zoo, are heralding an early spring baby boom. They are under constant care with their keepers taking the young animals home with them when their workday is done.
