The word “joey” means “little animal.” We do not yet know if this baby is a boy or a girl. But we do know that it will not grow much taller than the height of two 12-inch rulers. God designed it to have bark-gripping claws, strong limbs for climbing, and a long tail for balance. Those are good for living high in a tree! Psalm 145:5 says, “On your wondrous works, I will meditate.”
