Jedda is a Southern Hairy-nosed wombat and is getting her first taste of the world after permanently leaving mum Jumanji's pouch.

Born at Melbourne Zoo's Australia Bush, visitors can get a glimpse of the cutie in the zoo's Wombat Tunnel. But Oz is a bit of a trek, so we'll have to make do with this gorgeous snap!

Little Jedda weighs a healthy 3.615kg, but is likely to get a lot heavier – her mum is a whopping 29.99kg!

Although the fluffy animal is still surviving on Jumanji's milk, she's started mixing up her diet and is snacking on grass and hay – tasty!

Jedda is the zoo's first Southern Hairy-nosed wombat since 2011, so we bet staff are made up with how she's getting on.
