Yooranah was born at Edinburgh Zoo in May last year and has been waiting for the weather to warm up before being allowed on the outdoor koala climbing frame.

The koala joey was born the size of a jelly bean so keepers thought Yooranah was previously too young to be let loose in the outdoor area.

When the weather is good the keepers take the koalas out of their heated enclosures to soak in some vitamin D from sunlight, while enjoying the sights of the zoo from their perch.
