It's just one small step for kangaroos, but one giant leap for this joey!

A baby Goodfellow's tree kangaroo at the Taronga Zoo just outside of Sydney, Australia decided it was finally time to leave mom’s pouch… and take his very first steps!

The newborn stumbled his way out to get a look at his enclosure and managed to take a couple of steps before getting a little scared and leaping back to the safety of his mom’s pouch once again.

With a couple of more tries, this little joey will be hopping and bopping in no time!
