There was a stow-away on our local school bus this week. This little joey was rescued from the pouch of a dead kangaroo and taken to Jo, a local lady who raises orphans.

She also happens to drive our school bus.

The kids thought it was so cool having a ‘live joey’ going to school with them.

When I first saw him he was under layers of towels and sheets in a washing basket. Joeys need to feel like they’re in their mum’s pouch so covering them up so heavily is normal practise.

Hopefully this bloke will grow up happy and healthy – those deep brown eyes are enough to win anyone over!
