This maybe the oddest friendship when it comes to marsupials, however an orphaned Kangaroo and Wombat have managed to find some comfort in each other.
Anzac the joey kangaroo and Peggy the wombat are best friends after sharing a pouch together at a wildlife rescue centre in Victoria, Australia.
At just over five months old, Anzac was rescued at a beauty spot near Melbourne and placed with Peggy to help him feel at home.
Wildlife centre worker Lisa Milligan believes the inseparable duo are comforted by each others’ movement and heartbeat when they go to sleep.
The pair’s personalities also seem to perfectly complement one another, with Anzac being described as very social while his friend Peggy is more boisterous and cheeky.
The shelter, founded in 2009 in response to a series of severe bush fires in the state, is home to a variety koalas, kangaroos and wombats found injured at roadsides.
