Staff at Taronga Wildlife Hospital are providing round-the-clock care to this orphaned Brushtail Possum " with a little help from a soft toy kangaroo! The female joey has made a remarkable recovery since being found alone and suffering from dehydration in Mosman. The four-month-old will eventually be released back into the wild, but in the meantime she`s enjoying regular bottle feeds and cuddling up to the toy kangaroo as she would have done with her mother: http://bit.ly/1OiLLRS

A tiny baby possum is being hand-raised by an Australian wildlife hospital with the help of a stuffed kangaroo the baby animal treats as her mother.
