A cute baby potoroo is caught on camera peeking out of his mother's pouch to bite a strawberry.

Footage shows the marsupial's head as he craves the red currant in Cleland Wildlife Park, southwest of Adelaide, on Tuesday.

The mother and the joey were noticed by delighted visitors in the park's café garden while drinking in the sun.

The miniature animals can reach a maximum of 26 cm and a maximum of 1.6 kg.

A spokeswoman for Cleland Wildlife Park told Daily Mail Australia that the baby potoroo is the & # 39; size of an inch & # 39; would have been.

So visitors in the park must keep an open eye to see the furry mammals in action.

The potoroo is the most critically endangered mammal species susceptible to wild cats and foxes, according to scientists at Latrobe University.

The video, uploaded on the park's Instagram, gained almost 12,500 views in one day.
