Linton Zoo in Cambridgeshire is experiencing something of a baby boom.

Among the new arrivals are an albino red-necked wallaby joey which is now fully out of the pouch and can often be seen with the rest of the wallaby and red kangaroo mob

The zoo's adult female red kangaroo also has a baby in her pouch.

Other arrivals include 6 Indian Star tortoises which have recently hatched. Their parents ended up at the zoo after they were seized by customs officials.
