Their friendship is an extraordinary one: At just over five months old, Anzac the joey, was brought to the Wild about Wildlife Kilmore Rescue Centre in Australia after he was rescued in the Macedon Ranges.
Missing his mum, Anzac was placed with Peggy, the wombat, and the two now sleep together in the same pouch.
Lisa Milligan, from the Wild about Wildlife Kilmore facility, told news. com.au the unlikely friends were comforted by each other’s movement and heartbeat.
She also revealed that the babies were developing their own personalities; Anzac was very social while Peggy was boisterous and cheeky.
