Orphaned wombat and joey become friends at the Wild about Wildlife Kilmore Rescue Centre
- August 01, 2012
THEY are unlikely friends, but orphaned animals Anzac the joey and Peggy, the wombat have become best mates.
At just over five months old, Anzac was brought to the Wild about Wildlife Kilmore Rescue Centre after he was rescued in the Macedon Ranges.
Missing his mum, Anzac was placed with Peggy, the wombat, and the two now sleep together in the same pouch.
Lisa Milligan, from the Wild about Wildlife Kilmore facility, said the unlikely friends were comforted by each other's movement and heartbeat.
"There are lots of baby animals about at the moment, and they are orphaned for a range of reasons," Ms Milligan said.
She said the babies were developing their own personalities; Anzac was very social while Peggy was boisterous and cheeky.
