Baby Kangaroo Practises His First Hops At Sanctuary

If the sight of this little joey taking its first tentative hops doesn’t melt your heart all over the floor I don’t know what will.

Filmed at The Kangaroo Sanctuary in Alice Springs, in Australia’s Northern Territory, the touching footage shows orphaned six-month-old joey Bradley bouncing timidly towards Chris ‘Brolga’ Barns, the carer he has imprinted on at the sanctuary.

Kangaroo expert Chris, 44, saves joeys whose mothers have been killed, and has spent the last four weeks carrying Bradley around in a fabric pouch after the plucky marsupial’s mother was hit by a car.
