Check out our word of the week this week - joey!
joey. a baby kangaroo. Actually, originally used as far back as the 1820s for a young possum. Now commonly used for the young of any marsupial, as a wallaby, koala, bilby, quoll, quokka, potoroo, bettong, pademelon, even a wombat. Also used in a slang sense for the young of the human species.
