Meet Imogen, a hand raised baby Koala from the Symbio Wildlife Park in Sydney, NSW Australia.
This sweet little girl became the adoptive marsupial daughter of Kylie Elliot (Symbio curator) and Matt Radnidge (General Manager) when she was just 8 months old.
The joey’s mom was needed as an emergency surrogate for an infant koala at the zoo. The adoptive couple immediately opened their hearts and homes to this adorable, cheeky, and very needy little girl. Carrying her around in a makeshift pouch, they immediately took on the role as koala parents.
What an adorable picture of Imogen cuddling with her two legged adoptive mom, the beautiful curator Kylie Elliot from Symbio Wildlife Park. Kylie has the full-time responsibility of raising this little girl as if she were her own child. This means lots of waking up throughout the middle of the night for feedings just like a human mom has to do for her wee ones! Except in this case, feedings involve lots of eucalyptus!
Watch the insanely cute home video of Imogen as she shows off her cuddly, sweet, and mischievous side. You cannot help but fall in love with her as her sweetness steals your heart and makes you want to pet her super soft fluffy fur. Isn’t she the cutest?!!
