When baby kangaroos get hungry, being patient seems to be the last thing on their minds. Scarlett is a joey who is ravenous now and seeing her human mix her milk is not making her feel better. The young animal is an orphan living in The Kangaroo Sanctuary in Alice Springs, Australia. Chris ‘Brolga’ Barnes opened the rescue centre in 2005; nursing the animals back to health and releasing them into the wild once they are strong enough. Brolga has been known to take the role of surrogate mother to his roos by tucking them into his shirt like a pouch. So it should come as no surprise Scarlett is treating the “Kangaroo Dundee” as her mommy, who is just not preparing her bottle quick enough. Turns out, baby kangaroos are no different than our little humans tugging at the legs when they need their food, except for the hopping.
But mum! I want my milk now!!!* For licensing / permission to use: Contact – licensing(at)jukinmediadotcom Posted by The Kangaroo Sanctuary Alice Springs on Tuesday, February 16, 2016
