This sweet little Red-necked wallaby named "Hijinx" has recovered well after being involved in a terrible accident on the road.  His mother was found dead on the side of the road by a good client of ours.  She was clever enough to check inside the pouch and found "Hijinx".  He was hairless, but his little eyes were open.  We immediately placed him in the capable hands of a Tweed Valley wildlife carer and he has done remarkably well.  He even has some other young wallabies to socialise with.  We hope that eventually be released back in the wild near the area he was found.  If you find a dead marsupial on the side of the road, always check their pouch for live young.  Bring mother and baby in together if the baby is still attached to the mothers nipple as forced removal may damage the mouth parts of the baby.  Never be tempted to rear these animals yourself as it is a job for the experts.
