A tiny baby koala at Symbio Wildlife Park in Sydney, Australia, climbs up the leg of a cameraman and gives him cuddles. Adorbs!

Meet Makaia, he’s one very special Goodfellow’s Tree Kangaroo. When he was only five weeks old, he lost his mum. He needed a nice warm pouch to grow big and strong in, so Adelaide Zoo tried something that had never been done before… a Yellow-foot Rock-wallaby was found to be his surrogate mum. Up until now this special breeding technique, known as ‘cross-fostering’, has only been done with closely related wallaby species.
