DALLAS - The Dallas Zoo is getting ready to take care of another round of newborns this spring and summer.
 
News 8 got an up-close view of some of the "Zoo-borns," as they call them.

Zookeepers showed WFAA a wallaby joey that's a few months old, still in its mother's pouch. A wallaby is a marsupial, and their newborns are called "joeys."

The also gave WFAA's Wyatt Goolsby a look at a young titi monkey holding onto its mother's back. Titi monekys originate in South America.

Then there was the baby Lappet-faced Vulture, also known as the Nubian Vulture, hanging out all alone. The zookeeper picked the little one up for an even closer look.

Zookeepers say they always see smiles whenever they show off the little ones to visitors
