Missing his mum, Anzac was placed with Peggy, the wombat, and the two now sleep together in the same pouch.
Lisa Milligan, from the Wildlife Kilmore facility, said the unlikely friends were comforted by each other’s movement and heartbeat. “There are lots of baby animals about at the moment, and they are orphaned for a range of reasons,” Ms Milligan said. She said the babies were developing their own personalities; Anzac was very social while Peggy was boisterous and cheeky.
