If you’re cute-o-meter is going berserk, that’s because you’re about to meet Scotty the Wallaby. He is the cutest, tiniest little marsupial you’ll ever see, and he comes with a heartbreaking story that will make you love him even more. Scotty was rescued on Kangaroo Island after his mother was killed on the road. He is tiny – so tiny, in fact, that he still has to be fed by a syringe. Rescuers have explained that this practice is common: As tiny as wallaby babies are, their mouths are also unusually small. See pictures and a video of Scotty being cared for below, and try not to squeal too much at your desk – Although, when you see him curled up in someone’s hand, we wouldn’t blame you.
