Koala Joey turns 1 at SD Zoo
Omeo (pronounced Ooh-me-ooh), a male koala at the San Diego Zoo, turned 1 year old July 15 and received a special birthday celebration, complete with a heart-shaped ice cake made with natural flowers, and “presents.” This milestone birthday is extra special, as the young joey lost his mother due to cancer when he was about 5-and-a-half months old and still in her pouch. To save the joey’s life, Zoo veterinarians and wildlife care specialists intervened, feeding and caring for the little marsupial round the clock, and tending to his every need.
Wildlife care specialists decorated the koala habitat with a number 1 made of eucalyptus wrapped in raffia, a very large eucalyptus bouquet, and eucalyptus branches, melaleuca branches, bottlebrush and other Australian flowers. The birthday joey curiously looked at the items before energetically climbing on branches.
