I am feeding a baby grey kangaroo, she was rescued from her mothers pouch who
was hit by a car. Ben also known as Dr. Doolittle (to me) rescues animals like
wallabies and kangaroo. He mentioned that a lot of female kangaroos have
babies in their pouches when they are killed on the street and we should look to

This is a fruit bat or dog with wings, these guys could be quite noisy and
