The population of the Saint Louis Zoo increased by two over the winter, but the cuteness factor just grew exponentially. Kasbeth the Matschie's tree kangaroo and Conundrum the red kangaroo both gave birth to lima bean sized babies back in January; now those younguns are big enough to start venturing out of the pouch. And they are caaa-yute.

First we meet Bexley. He's a Matschie's tree kangaroo, a species that lives in the heavily forested mountain ranges of Papua New Guinea. Not much is known about how the live in the wild because of their remote habitat. You can visit him in the Emerson's Children's Zoo.
