Adorable orphaned baby wombat finds new home

Joey is an adorable baby wombat who became orphaned after its mother was struck by a vehicle.   Taronga Zoo is currently providing full care for her where a zoo keeper has been acting as her surrogate mother, bottle feeding her as needed, usually every 5 hours.

She has been responsible for melting the hearts of her care takers, and loves to chase after them so she can get more affection.  She will remain in the care of one of the zoo keepers at  Taronga Wildlife Hospital until she is strong enough to return to the wild.
