Aww, he's a cutie. You're so lucky bagnshoofetish. I would love to be an animal keeper. I love animals and would love to work with them all day.

It's sad that mama died but great that the zoo experts have saved him. Hard to believe that gestation is only 1 mo., but it still gets carried around for a long time! I love his ears--so cute!

^^^he is on "wombaroo", a marsupial formula we have to mix from a powder form.
he gets about 10cc's every feeding, increasing in very small increments as he gets older. he is fed every 3 hours, round the clock. when he first came to the nursery, I had to pull a 12 hour shift till 4 am because of this. all our shifts were pretty much turned upside down. now he is at home with a former keeper who still does animal rescue - its better for these guys to be raised by one person for consistency's sake. when he is weaned, he will come back to the nursery. I can't wait!
