Watch As Rescued Baby Kangaroo Opens Her Eyes For The First Time
🚨 Sound the cute baby alarm because we have a cute baby to share. 🚨
Meet Lisa, a 4-month-old eastern grey kangaroo opening her eyes for the very first time. Equally SQUEEEEEEEEEE-inducing: Her tiny, bay leaf-shaped ears, learning to stand on their own!
The extraordinary video comes to us by way of Our Haven Wildlife Shelter, a nonprofit sanctuary location in Golden Beach, Australia that cares for 'roos and related critters, such as wallabies.
While the circumstances surrounding little Lisa's arrival with the kind-hearted folks at Our Haven remain uncertain, what is clear is that she's fast becoming a viral sensation after making an appearance on ABC News.
Because joeys live in mom's pouch for up to 18 months (WOW!), infant kangaroos require round-the-clock attention and treatment, including regular feeding and oiling sessions (the latter to recreate conditions found in a mother's womb and prevent skin infections).
The clips below reveals just how delicate the species is in its early months.
Drinking from a bottle.
Nursing, while swaddled in what appears to be a very soft and cozy blanket.
Learning to stretch her legs.
Have you ever seen anything so precious in your life? Have you //REALLY//?
