Cuteness overload: Meet Yuri, a wallaroo hand-raised by humans
SEATTLE -- Yuri the wallaroo is just over a year old, and was born at Seattle's Woodland Park Zoo. But his mother wasn't able to give him the nutrition he needed to survive; so the veterinary team and zoo staff intervened right at birth to give him what he needed to grow into a strong wallaroo! That meant feeding him with a bottle several times a day; bottles that were specially made for a wallaroo to feed out of. And the formula? It had to be ordered from Australia. Zoo staff even had pouches specially made for Yuri. They crafted them in several versions to accommodate Yuri's growing size.
