Three-year-old Kofi, WILD LIFE Sydney Zoo’s first Goodfellow’s Tree Kangaroo, has more than just good looks – after only a year at the zoo he is wowing keepers with progress he has made in his training.

Footage released on January 21 for Kofi’s anniversary at WILD LIFE Sydney Zoo shows the adorable animal having a snack and showing off his target training skills in Sydney, Australia.

Kofi’s keeper, Renee Howell, said: “We developed a unique training program just for Kofi and we’re really proud of his achievements so far.”
