During the day our orphaned Wallaby Joey hops around with others in the wallaby 'mob', enjoying the summer sunshine. The keepers take it in turns to feed him a delicious mixture of evaporated milk, organic fruit juice, mashed calf pellets and banana through a syringe. At night he sleeps in a backpack lined with a soft fleece blanket – simulating his mother’s pouch. The youngster is thriving on extra cuddles from the keepers and seems to love being the focus of attention from visitors to the Park and the Media!

  1. What an adorable little guy! Poor little boy losing him mom like that. Good thing he has you all to take care of him :-)

    Not sure where you are taking name suggestions, but he looks like a Williby to me.

    Give him a little squeeze for me.
