This young joey was reared by caring humans after its mother was killed in road accident. About a year old now it is now living at Warrawong Sanctuary, in the Adelaide Hills.
This western grey kangaroo joey has a diet of grass and shrubs, supplemented by milk from a bottle. A joey would normally live in its mother's pouch for about 9 months, and continue to drink her milk for about another 9 months.
