San Diego Zoo's new koala joey had her first check-up last week and is doing well, according to staff.

In a video released by the zoo on Thursday, mother Cambee can be seen walking on a branch with her offspring clinging to her back.

Cambee gave birth in November but the joey only recently emerged from her mother's pouch.

San Diego Zoo says it has the largest breeding colony of Queensland koalas and the most successful koala breeding programme outside of Australia.
