The Cheyenne Mountain Zoo has an adorable new addition that made her debut over the weekend.

Meet Gidgee! She's a 6-month-old female red-necked wallaby.

Zoo officials said Gidgee has started to spend more time outside of her mom's pouch.

Guests can see her in the Australia Walkabout. The wallaby exhibit is open so guests can be up close to the wallabies.

The zoo said Gidgee loves eating almonds from her keepers and "showing guests how fast she can hop with her famous 'zoomies' around the yard."
