21/4/17; Isabella Robinson – Yahoo7
Social media users have fallen in love with an orphaned baby kangaroo named Terri who has been caught on camera desperately pleading to get into a man-made pouch for a snuggle.
The video, which was uploaded to The Kangaroo Sanctuary Alice Springs Facebook page, shows the tiny joey seemingly very excited and jumping up the leg of Chris ‘Brolga’ Barns.
Fortunately for the little roo the cloth pouch is lowered down and the animal leaps in.
At the end of the clip the loveable animal appears quite content having a cuddle with Chris ‘Brolga’ Barns.
The video was uploaded to the social networking site earlier this week with the caption: “Baby orphan kangaroo Terri just loves her pouch”
Terri is melting hearts all over the internet.
One Facebook user commented:”Ah what a gorgeous little Roo … she’s beautiful and so very lucky to have you to care for her.”
Another wrote: “Oh…isn’t she a total cutie!!! I’d be carrying her around in a pouch all day because who could resist that adorable face.”
