When two’s a crowd: Baby wallabys' cheeky antics at Dudley Zoo

It’s a tight squeeze – all because one of these wallabies is an imposter.

Dudley Zoo posted this image of three of the occupants of the Wallaby Walkthrough.

Trainee keeper Georgina Heminsley took a double take as she carried out her duties at the zoo.

Walking past the wallaby enclosure she spotted two heads peeping from one pouch. Both joeys had been born from different mothers, so one of them had either got confused or fancied a change of scenery.

The seven-month-old baby Bennett’s wallabies have become a big attraction at the zoo, which is now enjoying its 82nd year in the shadow of Dudley Castle.
