Monday Cute: Squeal Over This Orphaned Baby Kangaroo Being Held Like a Baby


Happy Monday! This video comes from The Kangaroo Sanctuary in Alice Springs, Australia and it will absolutely melt your heart.

The baby kangaroo is an orphan named Terri, who “loves her pouch and mummy Brolga.” Brolga who stars in Kangaroo Dundee a BBC UK / National Geographic USA documentary with “his mob of kangaroos,” started the rescue center to educate and encourage people to rescue and care for kangaroos.

Terri looks incredibly comfortable and happy jumping into that pouch. If you’re curious about what the pouch does, here’s their explanation:

“They hop into their mums pouches just like they hop into their pillowcase pouches I make them. We try to make them as close in shape and size as their mums pouch would be. And they are very clever at moving themselves when they are in the pouch.”

If you’ve fallen in love with Terri, the sanctuary posts regular updates on how she’s doing on Facebook so you can see her celebrating important occasions like Easter, cuddling her friend Nang, and generally being adorable.
