ST. LOUIS — Two new additions to the St. Louis Zoo are getting lots of attention.

Two baby kangaroos are now on display. Zoo officials said Bexley, a 7-month-old Matschie's tree kangaroo, is in the Emerson Children's Zoo. Bexley is now about the size of a small cat.

Meanwhile, a red kangaroo born in January is in the Red Rocks area of the zoo, and has been sticking its head out of its mother's pouch for a couple of months. That kangaroo hasn't been named because its gender has not yet been determined.
