Infant Joeys Get Bottle-Fed at Australian Reptile Park

Zookeepers at the Australian Reptile Park in Somersby, New South Wales, have been busy bottle-feeding infant joeys in an “animal preschool” at the park.

Keepers have had their hands full and their bottles at the ready as the facility has welcomed new joeys born throughout the season.

In footage released by the park, staff can be seen bottle-feeding a koala joey, a kangaroo joey, and a wallaby joey.

Staff said the “animal preschool” is attended by six Tasmanian devil joeys, a koala, a yellow-footed rock wallaby, a parrot, two Eastern quolls, and two rufous bettongs.
