The Wallaroo Joey

Animals’ world is so different than ours, yet sometimes humans prove that they have mastered in taking care of this different world, too, and are there to help the animals in all the ways possible. Read the story of this cute little newborn joey who is left all alone in the world after his mother died of an infection. But zookeepers at Oakland Zoo are giving their best to take care of this wallaroo joey and hand feed him.

  • Poor joey was orphaned soon after his birth. According to a report his mother, Maloo, died after giving birth to him and he was son removed from her pouch.
  • His age is not yet determined as he was a size of the kidney bean and lived in his mother’s pouch for a month.
  • The veterinarians found that the mother wasn’t well and had an infection and the next day she passed away.
  • The zookeeper had to make a special pouch to mimic his mother’s pouch as at this age he should remain in his mother’s pouch. Until he is ready to live with other wallaroos he would have to be kept in this special pouch.
  • Zoo officials are taking care of the joey in every sense. He is been fed seven times a day with a special formula from Australia. He is often taken out in the sun twice a day.
  • “We are working with other AZA facilities to be best prepared for the intense care required to successfully hand-raise a wallaroo”, says Andrea Dougall, Assistant manager of Oakland Zoo. “We are keen to get to know the little joey and prepare him for life with the rest of the mob.” Dougall further added.

Wallaroos are similar to kangaroos and wallabies but they are considered of a different species. They are smaller in size than kangaroos and bigger than wallabies. They are also like kangaroos native to Australia.

After completing my studies and getting a decent job I wanted to do something creative. I firmly believed that there should be a hobby that helps you to earn. Thus I made my hobby of writing into my part-time profession and started to write from the last two years. My journey as a writer has enriched me.
