Goes to show that everyone loves hugs, even marsupials. In Launceston, Tasmania, an orphaned baby wallaby named Doodlebug was photographed hugging his teddy bear for some much-needed comforting.
The image went viral after Tim Beshara, whose wildlife carer mum took the photo, posted it on Twitter. ‘Apparently a teddy on a string makes for a good companion for an orphaned wallaby. Who would’ve thought’, he tweeted.
Cue: our hearts melting to the sound of ‘awwww’.
